United States Consulate General Holds Election Night Event

United States Consul General Valerie Belon welcomed the people of the Dutch Caribbean and dignitaries, including acting Governor Adele van der Pluijm-Vrede and former Prime Minister Emily de Jongh-Elhage into Roosevelt House to celebrate the United States general election.


While keeping an eye on the election returns on a big screen, guests enjoyed typical American-style food, played election themed games, including energetic rounds of trivia, and participated in a live broadcast by TeleCuracao.

Everyone concurred that the party was a great success, even though it ended before President Obama was declared the winner very late that night. Mr. Rudy Dovale, a longtime American expatriate in Curacao, said, in particular, that it was such a great party that he did not want to leave. We thank and recognize all of the candidates who answered the call to serve their country, and the many Americans here who voted.
