The former BVIHSA Chairman was forced to resign at the request of Premier and Finance Minister Dr. D. Orlando Smith after commenting publicly on the airport expansion proposal and a recommendation by ardent supporter of the ruling NDP Mrs Eileen Parsons that the Premier give up the finance portfolio to Minister Skelton who previously served in that capacity.
