WHY ST MAARTEN HAS ISSUES WITH THE BUDGET….more email proof from YOUR government!


 It is important to take note that the budget below only reflects the highest costs that are known presently, that will cover the entire program for 3 month’s. We have

negotiated a discount on all proposals and enlisted support of all the companies involved to contribute their share to the constitutional change process. (Only the University still has to offer lower their prices).

One has to take note that this 3-month program will cover costs of only the main media mentioned below. However the intention is to send information to all media on the island, including the ones that are not paid, with the request to place the information at their convenience.

To complete the budget we still need quotations for:


The Billboards ·

Ian Valz; costs of scriptwriting; directing and costs of actors.·

PJD2 Radio: voice of Sint MaartenIf not available on a timely basis we will proceed with the advice to the Exco. Council in the meantime.
