Exclusive: Stephanie Carty Appointed Head Of Marketing And Communication Of Uszv. (Updated 2)

~ Conflict of Interest and Nepotism since USZV has no Supervisory Board. ~ Where are Governor Holiday and Government.?~Advertising monies spent on Carty's Radion stations.~ 

PHILIPSBURG: --- Director of USZV Glen Carty has allegedly appointed his daughter Stephanie Carty as head of marketing and communication of USZV. Carty supersedes Sharon Holder who worked at USZV for years. While Jennifer Carty contacted SMN News and denied the appointment saying her sister is working for her, sources within USZV says that the new marketing and communication director will not be working within the walls of USZV.
With the appointment that was allegedly made, it behooves the Minister of VSA and the Council of Ministers to question the alleged appointment is a blatant conflict of interest and nepotism since appointing his daughter to a high-ranking position should not be allowed, besides that, the COM and the Minister of VSA should also question how much money Carty is spending at his family's radio stations where he owns shares on advertising while other local media are being sidelined.
Another situation that is existing under the nose of the Council of Ministers is the fact that four of the Supervisory Board members' terms have expired and USZV does not have a functioning board based on its articles of incorporation Read more
