Guam - Former KUAM sports director, former Major Legue Baseball player, recently retired Miller Football League quarterback and Kontenda's Gym owner Brant McCreadie is running for senator. He's the first to announce his candidacy for the 32nd Guam Legislature. He was surrounded by family and joined by Lieutenant Governor Ray Tenorio and his wife attorney Naoko Shimizu this afternoon.

"I'm running because like I've always said my message is the same. I'm tired of being a critic on the sidelines and I want to get in there and be a part of the solution to better the island of Guam," he shared.

McCreadie is running under the Republican ticket and plans to focus on child advocacy as his platform. "My drive behind why I wanted to become a senator was putting the public behind public service. I'm not a politician and I don't think I'll ever be a politician .  I want to answer the call of the community and I want to make sure we have solutions   and I want to lead through a teamwork perspective. I don't want to get into the Legislature and have separation between the 15 people I want to be a strong member of a 15 person team and that we have can tie all the horses together and we can lead this island in the right direction," he said.

The Guam Election Commission is currently accepting packets for those interested in running for senator up until July 3.
