Calvo-Tenorio campaign rally kicks-off

Guam - Governor Eddie Calvo and Lt. Governor Ray Tenorio officially kicked off its campaign for progress rally Sunday before hundreds of island residents.  

Just days after the Democratic Party pledged its support to a possible gubernatorial team, the Republican ticket of Calvo and Tenorio kicked off its campaign for four more years at Adelup. "Twenty years ago, our island started going down the wrong road and we can't afford to go back to those dark days," said Tenorio.

Some of those dark days Tenorio says existed of government workers living in fear or the help you got had strings attached. "We want to keep moving in the direction of progress, solution and working together. That is the right direction for our island Eddie Baza Calvo is the right direction," he said.

The governor told supporters that over the past four years things only started getting better. "I spent these past four years working for you. My term as your governor has been dedicated to serving you," he said.

He says over these past four years, the Calvo-Tenorio administration has kept its campaign promises and more from paying tax refunds, merit bonuses, vendors and cola to name a few. "We took care of the past...and we set the foundation for the present that we are right now today. So why do we need a second term? Because I don't want anyone coming in to destroy everything we worked so hard to fix," he explained.

But it wasn't just about looking at what's been done in the past four years, but also what's in store for the future. "But It's not about the four years. It's about using those years to build something that will last beyond the years your grandchildren will inherit," he said.

It was just last week when former governor Carl Gutierrez told the Democratic Party that he intends to run for Adelup with Attorney Gary Gumataotao by his side. A formal announcement is expected later this month. Calvo said, "In this election, there's going to be a team that look at it all and desires power. And then there's our team...that serves you, the people of Guam."

Along with hundreds of supporters, the rally featured Republican senatorial candidates, congressional candidate Margret Metcalf and even Attorney General Lenny Rapadas.

"If you believe in the future of Guam, please join me," said Calvo. "Please join this movement."
