Gov. could talk about property taxes tonight

Dejongh The annual State of the Territory address is schedule for Monday night at 7 p.m.  You can listen to it on the Governor's Web site, http://www.governordejongh.com/

A statement from the Governor's office said, "(John) deJongh will highlight the work of his administration over the past three years and express his confidence and conviction that the territory is on the right path to overcome our current challenges and move toward a brighter future for all Virgin Islanders."

Of great interest to St. John business, villa, condo, and land owners will be any comment about the impasse between the federal government and the territory which has blocked property tax collections for at least three years. 

How you can run a government, or even a household, without a main source of revenue, is beyond most people. Unless, of course, you're piling up debt – which means interest payments … which means more debt.
