Guam - Former governor Carl Gutierrez will be running as a write-in candidate for the Office of Public Auditor. According to Democratic Party of Guam executive director Carlo Branch, it was during a gathering last night at Gutierrez's residence in Agana Heights when the former governor made the announcement in front of over 200 supporters.

Branch says Gutierrez noted to the crowd that he would run because "there is a small elite group of people who are walking away with millions of dollars in taxes and people who are supposed to ensure that doesn't happen aren't doing their job with that respect and that requirement."

He says Gutierrez will start a campaign as a write-in position with less than a month until the Decision 2012 Primary Election.

Branch adds based on his reading of the law, the top two vote getting candidates shall proceed to the General Election and will need to receive 4% of the ballots cast in the primary to move on to the General Election.  Incumbent public auditor Doris Flores Brooks is running unopposed.
