Ousted St. Croix Senator DeGazon Gets $95K To Head Division of Economic Research For Gov. Bryan

CHRISTIANSTED — Governor Albert Bryan. today named former Senator Allison DeGazon to take the position of Director of the Division of Economic Research effective Monday.

The Division of Economic Research provides reliable and quality statistics to enhance the social and economic development of U.S. Virgin Islands through statistical analysis and reports in support of public-sector and private-sector decision-making. The Division, formerly known as the Bureau of Economic Research, was under the Office of Management and Budget before becoming a division under the Office of the Governor.

“It is imperative that we build a unit in the Virgin Islands that generates, complies, analyzes and distributes data to support our public and private sector,” DeGazon said. “I intend to lead the charge in ensuring that our local data is accurate and accessible so that our policymakers can drive effective public policy and spur economic growth.”

Government House Communications Director Richard Motta said that DeGazon’s salary is $95,000 annually. St. Croix voters chose not to give DeGazon a second stint in legislative office in November 2020 when she placed ninth with 2,733 votes. The UVI grad left as a one-term senator with little to show for it.
