Governor Albert Bryan named Shikima Jones as administrator to the island of St. John Monday, completing the administration’s team of island administrators. Sen. Sammuel Sanes is St. Croix administrator and Avery Lewis is St. Thomas – Water Island administrator.

Jones, a St. John resident and longtime advocate for youth is a former acting administrator of parks and recreation with the Department of Sports, Parks, and Recreation. According to the administration, she has more than 20 years experience in public administration including three years with the office of then-St. John Administrator Jamie Dalmida. She is also a former youth coordinator under Gov. Roy L. Schneider.

“I am excited to announce Shikima Jones as our Administrator for St. John. I have seen first hand Ms. Jones’ advocacy for the St. John community and her energy and passion for resolving the longstanding issues with road repairs, waste management, and trash hauling, and removal of abandoned vehicles is inspiring and aligns perfectly with the priorities of the Bryan-Roach administration. The Lieutenant Governor and I appreciate her accepting the call to serve the people of St. John,” Bryan said in a statement announcing the appointment.
