The St. John Coalition said it gathered almost 1,100 petition signatures urging the Governor to veto the Senate’s approval of a bill allowing developers of the Sirenusa condominiums to add seven units. The Coalition planned to deliver its petitions to the Governor’s office.
"There are rumors Sirenusa will once again pay their workers to demonstrate for the rezoning by going to Government House on Friday," the Coalition said in an e-mail. "It is obviously hard for the rest of the working people of St. John to take off from work, since we won’t be paid to demonstrate. And of course, we live on St. John — rather than St. Thomas."
