ST. THOMAS — Virgin Islands lawmakers had mixed feelings about Gov. Albert Bryan Jr.’s second State of the Territory address on Monday, with many praising the governor’s enthusiasm and optimistic tone, but suggesting the speech, at times, was bereft of details.

“It seems like we received an update as to what we’ve been able to accomplish in terms of federal funds, but I did not hear any clearly articulated specifics in terms of what this means for the territory — the bread and butter issues,” said Sen. Alicia Barnes. “It’s been three years since the hurricanes, and I wanted to hear more than ‘we’ve received.’ ”
