Guam - Governor Eddie Calvo and Lieutenant Governor Ray Tenorio officially filed their candidacy today seeking four more years at Adelup. A little rain wasn't going to dampen the spirit of the Calvo-Tenorio team as they filed their candidacy before the Guam Election Commission today.

With over 11,000 signatures on hand, the Republican ticket submitted its packet in hopes of four more years in Adelup. "We have done the things that we've said we were going to do," said Tenorio. "Governor Calvo has committed to and the administration is transparent and gets things done for everyone and that's what we've done."

The lieutenant governor says he's humbled to be part of this ticket. He asked a crowd of supporters to remember "the darkness of the past" and what our government used to be like and how this administration changed things for the better. "There's been empty promises submitted over many years that this administration delivered with the first two and them finalized in the last three and half to four years that nobody has ever accomplished before and that is a testament to not just Governor Calvo, but a great government and we need to continue to have the same government," he announced.

And just as quick as they were to accomplish many initiatives, for Governor Calvo, it felt just like yesterday when we first applied to lead this island. "First of all it's like déjà vu. These four years went by too fast - a lot more do," he said.

Calvo attributes any success he's had to a simple formula he says involves the hardworking people in this administration who work for the people of Guam. "We didn't do anything special, Ray and I, all Ray and I did and our team was we focused on what every elected official should focus on - understanding that in a democracy it is the people that pull over the elected leaders and those put in the position of highest responsibility they must humble themselves to serve the people more than anyone else," he said.

And without naming names, he's says unfortunately some have not utilized this simple formula, noting, "There are those who have run for office, sometimes them thinking they're the messiah and the great leader and that every decision must come from them, that's not what a democracy is all about."

Instead he says it's about being with the people and listening to their needs adding a measure of a society is how it treats its most needy. "Its time for our people to reach their greatest heights and this rising tide will occur with the right direction," he said.
