Virgin Islands Lieutenant Governor candidate Edgar Bengoa has resigned as Chairman of the Board of the St. Croix Chamber of Commerce. According to Vice Chair Diane Butler, who will serve as interim chair, Bengoa’s resignation was effective May 5, 2018. Bengoa was sworn in as Chairman at the Chamber’s annual breakfast meeting in February.

“Edgar has been a dedicated and active member of the Chamber for well over 20 years and has been elected to serve on the Board several times” said Butler. “We wish him well and thank him for his many years of advocacy for St. Croix’s business sector.”

Butler will serve as interim chair until a formal vote is taken on a replacement for Bengoa at the Chamber's upcoming regular monthly meeting.
