Warning: Government Shutdown Expected

The deadline to file for candidacy in November's election was yesterday.

Some items from the news that stand out to me:
  • The Covenant Party (a Republican party break away) is only fielding 6 candidates. WTF?
  • Tina Sablan, after months of saying that she had no interest in running, is running
  • Jack Angello, the guy that makes half the island misspell my name, is running. He's the only haole...well, full haole anyways. We've got a few hapahaoles.
  • There are only four women running...and they are all running in precinct 1. What's up with that?
  • There are no Jedi candidates this year.
I am going to offer any political candidate the opportunity to be interviewed by me for a post on this blog. It will be worth your time. This blog has between 300-500 unique readers per day, making it the third largest and most popular written media in the CNMI, after only the Saipan Tribune and the Marianas Variety.

Most of the questions will be serious and a few will be silly. Questions I want to ask every candidate:
  1. How are you related to me?
  2. What should be done to candidates caught buying votes?
  3. Can I borrow $100?
  4. What has been your greatest contribution to the CNMI?
  5. Ambrose Bennett has been saying this for years, but does he really have any common sense?
Alright, I've got to run. I'm on Harry's show in 10 minutes and then I have a busy morning. Taya Talent has a soccer game at 5:15 PM tonight at the CPA Airport Field.

So I probably won't get to this until tonight.

The true test to see if someone will run is if they continuously deny that they will.

Dignity and Intigrety is the most important for a good leader.
