Anthony McMaster appointed Acting RDA boss after ‘rigorous review’

Anthony McMaster

Former Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Communication & Works, Anthony McMaster, has been appointed to act in the position of Chief Executive Officer of the Recovery & Development Agency (RDA).

His appointment will commence on March 2, an RDA-issued press release stated.

McMaster relocated to the RDA February last year to serve in the post of Director of Programme Delivery.

“McMaster was selected following a rigorous internal review and recruitment process,” the release stated. “He will continue to drive the implementation of the Government of the Virgin Islands’ recovery agenda.”

Grateful

In the meantime, McMaster said he is pleased to be the new RDA boss.

He said: “I am grateful to be chosen to be in such a prestigious position. It is a great opportunity for a BV Islander to become the Head of the Recovery and Development Agency.” 

McMaster then gave kudos to the outgoing head of the agency, Paul Bayly and the rest of the team at the RDA.

While McMaster will commence his new role on March 2, Bayly will officially vacate his post on March 20.

    We all know only cronies does get anything around here. But I rather seeing a black person taking a nibble off the cheese than a caucasian taking the lion share while doing nothing. Y’all love to see white people in position so much even when they do nothing for y’all while taking money from your community to build the white community. You really think that white man was doing anything for y’all? We have allowed caucasian people too much white privilege in our islands, taking the lion share of everything while we work like slaves to receive nothing. Look at the airplane debacle, I guess the whites was looking out for us? did that 7.2 mil stay in the territory or did it go to the white community in another country. The UK aint giving you no handout unless you agree to be their b!tch. I won’t be suprised if they want to set up freedom of movement for them here. Y’all keep playing around with them ppl, history repeats itself.
