Representative of the Second Electoral District Melvin ‘Mitch’ Turnbull said residents in the territory are being underused, and has called for Government to include them during efforts to rebuild the British Virgin Islands.
The Government lawmaker made the statement in the aftermath of two category 5 hurricanes smashing into the territory more than a month ago, causing widespread destruction.
“We’ve lost tremendous amount of property and real estate and personal items, but now how we get back from it? The process of it must be done where we include our people which is the most underutilized resource,” Turnbull said.
