St. Croix – Senatorial Candidate Samuel Carrion urges all unregistered voters to let their voices be heard in the upcoming November Elections.
The Virgin Islands is struggling right now with crime, healthcare and many other pressing issues and voting gives citizens the power to shape our government and the policies we want to see implemented in our community, Mr. Carrion said.
“It’s important that all Virgin Islanders participate,” he said “Voting is our political power as citizens. Don’t give up your power!”
Mr. Carrion said he was working with a group of volunteers that would assist anyone who needed help with the process or who felt that they may need translation services to complete their registration. Contact Mr. Carrion at 340-227- 2266.
“Call us and we will do our best to assist,” the Candidate said.
Mr. Carrion, who has long been very active in the community, said he was running for office in order to play a bigger role in addressing the issues most important to Virgin Islands families.
“People have begun to lose hope, but I truly believe we can and must do better,” he said.
His own dissatisfaction with the status quo inspired Mr. Carrion’s bid for office.
“I am adamant about pushing for voter registration and voter participation, as we won’t get different results until we have some different representation,” he said. “I am asking for your support, so that I can do more to support you. My campaign is not about me, but about the people – your family, my family, all of us! I believe in ‘Progress for All’. Progreso para todos!”
U.S. citizens who meet Virgin Islands residency requirements can register to vote at the Board of Elections at Sunny Isle from 10 to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. Voter registrations will continue through Saturday, October 3.
