The cat is out of the bag

An article in the Marianas Variety today makes mention of my intention to run for Mayor of Saipan.
Jesse Torres president of the newly organized Democratic Party, told the Variety yesterday that he and their public information officer Angelo Villagomez will seek office.

Torres is a House candidate in Precinct 5, while Villagomez will be the party’s Saipan mayoral candidate.

The third Democratic candidate is Saipan Rep. Justo S. Quitugua who is running for the Senate.

When interviewed on Saturday, Villagomez, an environmental advocate, said he was still collecting signatures for his candidacy and would soon make an official announcement.

Torres disclosed to Variety that several members of the community, especially those who supported the reconsolidated Democratic Party, convinced Villagomez to run for mayor.
And there you have it.

I am turning in my nominating petition at 10 AM this morning. I'm about to head out the door to collect the last of the signatures from my volunteers.
