CHARLOTTE AMALIE — St. Thomas Senator Marvin Blyden said that he “thanks Democratic voters for supporting him in the Primary Election.”

“I am truly grateful and humbled by the results of the election. I want to thank the voters of the Virgin Islands for their unyielding support,” Bylden said.

Senator Blyden also said that he extends his thanks and appreciation to his volunteers, family and staff for all their efforts.

“My team provides immeasurable encouragement, guidance and support and I just want to say thank you to all,” he said.

Blyden said that he looks forward to continuing to work for the people of the Virgin Islands and providing “REAL SOLUTIONS.”

Blyden is one of two senators in the 32nd Legislature who regularly send their press releases to the Virgin Islands Free Press.

The other senator is Janette Millin Young, who began sending releases to the V.I. Free Press when she announced that she was running for governor.

There are 15 senators in the Legislature of the Virgin Islands: seven on St. Croix, seven on St. Thomas and one serving the district of St. John as an at-large senator.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
