VII. Governmental Services and Operations

A Republican Administration built decent roads and provided adequate lighting, which has been neglected by subsequent administrations. Good means of communication and a well-planned infrastructure are as basic to efficient government as are the institutional guarantees offered by schools, hospitals, and public safety. Government accountability is impossible to evaluate because Annual Budgets and State of the Territory Reports are constantly postponed, making them valueless as statistical evidence. Periodic review of performance is the best method of ensuring efficiency in government personnel. A merit system and a citizens’ task force made up of private accountants are safeguards recommended to review the manner in which the government spends public funds.
