A Flabbergasted Citizen Speaks Out

Dear Source:
The Virgin Islands Governor is asking for annual leave for himself? Give me a break, what annual leave? Just explain to me how does a person in his position, or other elected officials for that matter, accrue annual or sick leave? The man can stay in his bed for months, don't lift a pen and still get a big paycheck. This revelation is not only astonishing but utterly mind-boggling. I feel the pain of the many bottom-of-the-totem-pole government employees who unfortunately are being left in the dust while Governor Turnbull and his merry band of cohorts run off with the spoils.
