Gov-Elect Bryan To Meet With Washington Bigwigs
WASHINGTON — Virgin Islands Governor-elect Albert Bryan, Jr. said he will visit the nation’s capitol this week to meet with Virgin Islands Delegate to Congress Stacey Plaskett, along with Congressional leaders and Trump Administration officials.
Since announcing the leadership of his transition team during a press conference on Nov. 28, Governor-elect Bryan has met with officials from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for an initial briefing on the hurricane recovery efforts in the territory and with the financial advisors of the current administration.
“Last week I met with Governor Mapp’s financial team and with FEMA officials for initial briefings on the financial state of the territory and updates on the ongoing recovery and rebuilding effort,” Bryan said. “It is clear the challenges that lie ahead for the territory, and our transi-tion assessment teams are hard at work identifying the vulnerabilities. They will provide the Bryan-Roach administration with their analyses which we will consider in our imme-diate actions to address these and other issues.”
Governor-elect Albert Bryan (D-VI) and Congresswoman Stacey Plaskett (D-VI) will host a joint press conference on Dec. 11 to discuss the federal government’s ongoing role in the hurricane recovery efforts and the Governor-elect’s meetings in Washington, D.C.
“I am looking forward to meeting with our Delegate to Congress and other Congressional leaders this week and with key administration officials to not only continue working on the hurricane recovery, but also to begin a working relationship with our administration, Congress, and The White House,” Governor-elect Bryan added.
