Guam - Hundreds of people turned out Thursday night for the "People's Rally" hosted by the Democrat gubernatorial team of Carl Gutierrez and Gary Gumataotao.

Both Gutierrez and Gumataotao spoke about their grassroots campaign and the need for change in the current administration. Gutierrez said, "When the results come in and it's Gutierrez/Gumataotao - it's not only Gutierrez/Gumataotao it's all of us marching to Adelup, everyone one of us let us reclaim back our island, let's make the laws necessary to be able to take care of our lives and not be marginalized and pushed aside because we're not part of the mainstream elites up there."

"People without a job cannot afford affordable housing," echoed Gumataotao. "They need a job, they want dignity, they want to be able to feed their families 0440 so who's going to do that for them? Carl Gutierrez is going to do that for them. Carl Gutierrez has a plan and his plan is to put as many people to work as possible."

The rally also featured all 15 Democrats running for senator and both Democrat congressional candidates.
