Former Gov. Felix P. Camacho and Sen. VicenteA.B “Tony” Ada today officially filed their candidacy for governor and lt. governor.
Surrounded by their families and supporters, the two candidates presented the required documents to the Guam Election Commission.
“Today we are faced with many challenges. The reality of living on Guam with energy challenges, inflation and the cost of living, increase in drug use and crime, and economic changes have forced many families to leave the island and look for a better life elsewhere." Camacho said, "This saddens me greatly, and I know, with Sen. Tony Ada and I at the helm, we will bring our island back.”
According to the campaign's press release, the Republican team has spent the past four months talking with island residents about the challenges currently besetting the community.
“Our cause is noble and just,” Ada said. “Guam is in dire need of CPR-Christ. Prayer. And a Republican governor! To this, we need all residents eligible to vote to register and ensure they cast a ballot in the primary and general elections. With your collective support, together we will rise."
