Willock eyes At-Large candidacy for VIP

Julian Willock

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.

    He is probably so upset because he cannot control the blogs over here like he does on the yellow site. Poor thing isn’t going anywhere, but the end of this year he will be bashing the VIP non-stop because they will reject him.

      No man name Willock is from Tortola. Partner go wheel and come again. He is a Virgin Islander because of his mother and grandmother. What father name Willock from Tola, Parrner?

    • Nothe! says:

      How else you expect the esteemed one to win but “bottom-line.” Politics dutty. He better be prepared for the onslaught of negative publicity when he put himself out there as candidate for office. Tola people frigg up on them mouth when they don’t like yoh.

    This would be the worst move ever by VIP – Way too many alleged incidents of cor———–n – none of his tenures in govt positions ended well and now is the time the BVI needs as much honesty as possible- and JW just does not have that in him

      The esteemed is not as popular in the streets as you think. A rude awakening awaits. I personally want him to be chosen as an at large candidate to witness the flogging at the polls.

    Did Mr. Willock list among his glowing accomplishments getting fired form his Civil Service position as a Permanent Secretary?
    Did he forget violating the laws of the BVI by bringing in undocumented workers from outside the territory, to run his on-line “yellow journalism” news website? The undisclosed ownership of said news website being the reason he was dismissed as Permanent Secretary…
    I think not.
    C—– minds want to know!
