E-mail that helped get Texaco reopened

The St. John Coalition has distributed an e-mail from Chevron’s Puerto Rico District Manager explaining how it came to be that
O’Connor’s service station is operating again.  The Coalition’s Sharon Coldren said the group contacted Chevron, "explaining the consequences of closing the station and asking them to reopen."  In reply, the company’s Algernon Cargill explained
that the VI government ordered the company to "surrender the station
prior to Sept 30."  After closure on Sept. 3, the government reversed
position and asked Chevron to operate the station until June 30, 2007.
Algernon said he "worked as quickly as possible to secure the renewal
lease."
