Here’s How to Take Action and Help Stop New Elections in Sint Maarten

Please take the time to share this post

The government of Sint Maarten, led by the dishonorable Prime Minister William Marlin, is failing the people of the island. On Thursday, November 2, 2017, Parliament effectively voted to remove Marlin from his position. Marlin responded by calling for elections to be held to form a new government.

At a time where the entire island is in disarray, struggling to recover from the most devastating storm in history, calling for elections is nearly criminal. The community of Sint Maarten needs to move forward, and they should not be called on to vote for a new government when so many people remain homeless, jobless, with no where left to turn.

In addition, by calling for new elections, Marlin continues to cause a delay in desperately needed Dutch funding. The Dutch have openly stated that they do not want new elections to be held and a new government to be formed. If this proceeds, Sint Maarten may not receive any relief funding from the Dutch.

Please take a moment to sign the petition showing your support for no new elections in Sint Maarten. Help put an end to the incompetent, selfish leadership of Prime Minister William Marlin.

I fell in love with the island of Saint Martin the first time I visited to celebrate my 40th birthday in May of 2009. Since then, I've spent most birthdays there, and have visited countless other times getting to know this wonderful place and the friendly locals that make it so special. I adore the culture, the people, the community, and the beauty of this stunning island. SXM Strong is a website that I started to support humanitarian relief efforts following Hurricane Irma. There was no plan, it just evolved as I witnessed the devastation that Irma caused the island and the huge need to communicate and disseminate information about what had happened and how people could help support this island and its people.
