Gutierrez/Gumataotao announce intent to run

Posted: Updated:

Guam - During a  Democratic Party of Guam meeting Saturday night former Governor Carl Gutierrez and former Deputy Attorney General Gary Gumataotao announced their intentions to run for Governor and Lt. Governor of Guam.

Joaquin Perez,  who is also Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo's campaign treasurer,  has agreed to serve as Co-Chair of the Guiterrez-Gumataotao campaign along with Dr. Nerissa Underwood.

Perez unveiled the new Gutierrez-Gumataotao campaign logo which he explained incorporates the image of Chief Gadao and 19 stars representing all 19 municipalities. 

Several Democratic senatorial candidates also spoke during the meeting. They included: Speaker Judith Won Pat, Senator Benjamin Cruz, Senator Tina Barnes, Senator Rory Respicio, Senator Tom Ada, Senator Frank Aguon Jr., Senator Mike San Nicolas, former Senator Judi Guthertz, former Senator Adolpho Palacios, Frank Ungacta, and Attorney John Terlaje. 

Party Chairperson Senator Rory Respicio also noted that Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo will be running for re-election and that Senator Ben Pangelinan, Senator Dennis Rodriguez, Iraq Combat Veteran Rodney Cruz and Dr. Nerissa Underwood will also be running for Senator.

Matt Artero also attended the meeting and announced his plans to run for Congress. 

Party Chairperson  Respicio stated, "Democrats are clearly getting enthused about this year's election and are moving to unite behind our candidates. The upcoming launch of the Gutierrez-Gumataotao team is  energizing not only Democrats but also disaffected Republicans and Independents.  Governor Gutierrez is a proven "grassroots" leader who always fought for working people. Gary Gumataotao is a former Deputy Attorney General  and has extensive private sector experience as a practicing attorney and local businessman. Together I believe they will be a strong team in this year's contest for Adelup."
