Yes, I am still the Press Secretary.
In a meeting on April 13, 2010, the Central Executive Committee of the NMI Democratic Party unanimously voted Jesse C. Borja as their candidate for CNMI Delegate to the United States Congress.
Party chair Jesse J. Torres had this to say of Borja's nomination: “We are proud to announce that Jesse Borja is our official candidate. We selected him based on his education and experience, and because of his deep-seated belief in the ideals of the Democratic Party.”
The NMI Democrats are inviting the public to the Democrat Reunion General Meeting at the Minachom Atdao in Susupe on April 30 at 6:30pm. Jesse C. Borja will be speaking at the event and the NMI Democrats will be registering new Democrat members.
“Jesse is the kind of candidate that the New Democratic Party is looking for,” said press secretary Angelo O'Connor Villagomez. “I look forward to the community getting the opportunity to better know him.”
Borja received his juris doctorate from Georgetown University and has been a member of the CNMI Bar Association since 1974. He served as an associate justice of the CNMI Supreme Court from 1989 to 1993 and as lieutenant governor from 1994 to 1998. Borja was also a member of the Northern Mariana Islands Commission on Federal Laws. He is currently in private practice on Saipan.
