When I last check the people of StMaarten voted for a government to represent them, instead trash (Roy marlin) is in pursue of foreign interest.
What Mr. Trash should be doing is to seek Dutch funding and ways and means to upgrade our police force and to seek funding for more schools not forgetting our hospital in StMaarten.
People like Roy marlin are rejects from Aruba that come here where they can be some one important in life. Instead of praising the StMaarten people and promoting the recognition of native StMaarten people in our constitution.
Mr. Trash first and for most priority is to seek funding for immigrants children. Mr. Trash let me teach you some good old StMaarten Values.
You cannot milk a cow if you do not feed it, and charity begins at home. It is people like you who make StMaarten look like fools. Real Arubans unlike you who is wanabee told me if you were in Aruba you will never try that, because you will know the end results.
I keep asking my self why our Prime Minister keep trash like you in her party. Madam Prime minister Sarah Westcott don't you think you should stop associating yourself with people that have no love for us.
That man is a wicked and malicious man with only bad intentions for native StMaarten people. Ooh I forget another Marlin on the loose. Danger, bird of same feather flocks together.
Mr. Trash is traveling on StMaarten taxpayer's expense to represent illegal immigrant's children, but that nasty trash will not fight to recognize the native StMaarten people in our constitution.
Madame Prime Minister don't you feel guilty for having some one like that belittling your own native people. I give you and Mr. Heliger credit for blocking the motion to fund illegal immigrants, but I urge you to get trash out of your party, he only can do you harm. Further associating your self with Mr. Trash will be to your down fall.
As a lady of StMaarten Heritage you must show respect to your ancestors. The conclusion madam prime minister will be you will have to show us if you are on the native StMaarten people side or is it the wanabee trash from Aruba. I hope you choose wisely and get trash out of StMaarten government.

Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, CMC –Off-spinner Shivon Sankar snatched a remarkable six-wicket haul to lead Guyana to first innings points over Leeward Islands on the opening day of the second round of matches in the West Indies Cricket Board’s Under-15 Championship on Tuesday.
