Guam - Governor Eddie Calvo and Lieutenant Governor Ray Tenorio kicked off their campaign for re-election this weekend with a village meeting in Inarajan. A motorcade starting in Yigo to the southern village collected over 1,500 cars and according to Republican Party of Guam chairman Mike Benito, it's a sign of the excitement leading up to the primary election later this year.
"There's a lot of excitement out there, there's a lot of people coming out wanting to volunteer, a lot of new faces and what's great about it is there's a lot of new faces from both sides of the table, be it republican, democrat, independent 0837 so it's really kind of nice to see," he said.
Hundreds of Malojloj and Inarajan residents, village organization leaders and village mayors welcomed the Calvo/Tenorio team at the home of Connie and Jr Garrido. Benito says several potential Republican candidates for the Guam Legislature will be joining the village meetings in the next coming weeks. The next village meeting is set for this Sunday January 19 at 6pm in the village of Malesso at the residence of Paul and Darlene Salas on Chalan Kanton Tasi.
