Fellow Virgin Islanders, residents, friends and visitors, the Christmas Season is upon us again and all over the world persons will celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. The celebration takes on different forms depending on customs and religion.
Here in the Virgin Islands as is customary we are busy doing all the things that will make Christmas a memorable and enjoyable season. This involves repainting homes, cleaning, baking tarts, cakes, ham and turkey, making guava beery wine and putting up that Christmas tree local or imported just to name a few.
On December 2, 2014, Accountant General, Dr Sandra M Besson, tendered her resignation to the department of Human Resources, giving the public service the requisite three months' notice and citing her decision as one that is personal.
The Government of the Virgin Islands is grateful to Dr Besson for her dedicated service to effective public service delivery and the management of the Territory's fiscal resources.
