"I stand firmly behind my initiatives to diversify and grow our economy and improve opportunities for hardworking Virgin Islanders at a time when we must act swiftly to preserve and support our shrinking middle class. I can’t promise that we will win every battle in Washington, but I can promise that I will always put the people of this territory first as I have dedicated my entire life to effective and efficient public service. In my enthusiastic support for our beloved home, I will not lose sight of the challenges faced by all Americans and of the importance of becoming part of both Democratic and bipartisan alliances in the face of ongoing Congressional gridlock. As your Delegate, each day I will advocate for your unalienable rights and support a platform for Virgin Islands progress and prosperity – as our people deserve nothing less." - Shawn-Michael Malone
