CHRISTIANSTED — The failure of the Bryan-Roach Administration to properly maintain St. Croix’s roads and public spaces has reached pandemic levels — citizens complained on social media this weekend.
As these pictures of the Virgin Islands Department of Finance—Bureau of Internal Revenue property in Estate Diamond-Ruby—adjacent to the Sunny Isle Shopping Center show.
The potholes in this government parking lot—and roads across the Big Island—are big enough to repossess your car whole—to pay off former Governor Kenneth E. Mapp’s outstanding tax obligation.
Governor Albert Bryan, Lt. Governor Tregenza Roach, BIR Director Joel Lee—you have to come better than this—for the good of the people of the U.S. Virgin Islands—and for the health and safety of the motoring public.
People had scant praise for the poor civic planning of the Bryan-Roach Administration on social media this weekend.
“I thought Villa La Reine’s parking lot was the worst; well, I didn’t know how bad it can get until I arrived at that parking lot!” Sonja DeLilah Ali said on Facebook.
“And unfortunately that’s just one example of one of the mini roads here,” Nanette S. Sarcinella said. “One of the roads downtown Christiansted has a water leak still. That I’ve noticed for a week now where it’s coming out.”
“Wowwwww. They full of sh_t! Up to now they can’t fix roads,” Yajaira Bonano said. “SMH sad.”
“LOL. Driving through there I thought I was in a dingy,” Sully Rodriguez said. Thank God my Jeep high.”
“Wait this Finance parking lot and road,” Beatrice Benjamin-Gumbs said. “These potholes looks like a giant paw print like a dinosaur walk in there last night.”
