Businessman Julian Willock is seeking approval from the Virgin Islands Party (VIP) to run as a VIP At-Large candidate in the upcoming general election.
Willock recently released a video more than six minutes long stating the reasons he should be considered.
He listed him being a VIP ‘supporter’ for more than two decades among those reasons.
“Like many others, I have options and invitations to join other groups but I strongly believe in the values of the VIP — putting people first, love for country and rejecting a class system.”
“I will be going before the VIP Congress to seek their nomination and confirmation to be one of four At-Large candidates on their slate in the next general elections; constitutionally due by June 2019,” he said.
I’ve got what it takes
Willock said he believes he possesses the ‘necessary’ skills and talents to seek higher office.
He said he is ‘confident’ of victory because he “can represent the country locally, regionally, or internationally; having been a former Permanent Secretary and the Director of the Water and Sewerage Department.”
He described his tenure in the public service as well as his status as a businessman as important attributes to help support the VIP’s “new, dynamic leader the Honourable Andrew Fahie”.
He further said he brings to the proverbial table new ideas and solutions to make life better for residents of the British Virgin Islands.
He concluded by pointing to his ‘love for the territory’ and his aim is to ‘give a voice to the voiceless’.
Just this week, six persons were announced as VIP candidates in the impending election.
VIP Chairman Andrew Fahie said the process to select the remaining three district candidates and the four territorial At-Large candidates will begin right away.
