Guam - Over the past few weeks, several incumbent senators have filed their candidacy with the Guam Election Commission. And today, a familiar name in the Government of Guam is officially throwing her hat into the political ring as Mary Torres filed her candidacy for senator under the Republican ticket. Torres, joined by her family and friends along with her brother former governor Felix Camacho, says if elected, she wants to ensure the quality of life is preserved for generations to come.

"I'm choosing to run for senator because I believe our island needs good quality, principled leadership and I've demonstrated throughout my life and throughout my career that I have the passion and the compassion to serve the people well," she said.

Torres has extensive management experience in the private and public sector including deputy general manager of the Guam Visitors Bureau, executive director of the A.B. Won Pat International Airport Authority, and the general manager of the Port Authority of Guam. The deadline meanwhile to file is on July 1.
