Donna M. Christensen – An Honor and Privilege to Represent the U.S. Virgin Islands

It has been my honor and privilege to represent the people of the U.S. Virgin Islands for the past 17 years, and to have been given the opportunity to have an impact locally, regionally and nationally.


"I fully support the re-election of my friend and colleague Congresswoman Donna M. Christensen as the Delegate from the U.S. Virgin Islands. Congresswoman Christensen has played a key role in our Caucus, especially in the area of health care reform and the elimination of disparities for minorities across the country. But more importantly, she has been a relentless, forceful advocate for the people of the U.S. Virgin Islands and the other offshore territories.

Congresswoman Christensen has transformed the role of delegate by gaining the respect of her colleagues on national issues, which propelled her to a seat on one of our top three House Committees, the Energy and Commerce Committee where she no longer has to ask another Member to act on or speak on her behalf, but where she can speak and vote on a variety of area like healthcare, energy, telecommunications and commerce, all issues that are vitally important to growing economies in today's environment.

The U.S. Virgin Islands and the other offshore territories now have a voice and a vote on that Committee and that is in large part because of the knowledge and experience that Congresswoman Christensen brings to the legislative and political process here on Capitol Hill."

Hon. Nancy Pelosi
Democratic Minority Leader
