Lee Rohn is Seeking a Seat at the Constitutional Convention

May 19, 2007 — As an attorney I work with and interpret and help to draft laws every day. As such i have a good knowledge of how to word things and how to make things clear so that there is no confusion.
I believe the constitution should be dedicated to setting out the rights and privileges as well as responsibilities that we in the Virgin Islands have a right to expect. This includes making all the protections of the United States constitution applicable to us, making it clear that companies cannot come into the Virgin Islands and not attempt to hire us but instead bring in less experienced workers and pay them higher wages, prohibiting companies from making workers sign away their rights in order to get a job with biased arbitration agreements, preventing large multinational companies from taking our rights away in the small print of their contracts. At the same time, good corporate citizens who contribute to this community need to be protected and given their rights as well.
i seek to be a delegate to represent the regular everyday citizen who struggles to get by, the same people that I have represented all my life. I will listen to the people of the Virgin Islands and their wants and needs and attempt to draft the best constitution for all of us.
