Guam - Democrat candidate for governor, former governor Carl Gutierrez says he is hoping the Guam Election Commission gets to bottom of what happened with the ballots that were not printed correctly in generating one-sided ballot so they can move on with the campaign.

Gutierrez stated, "I think that there were other problems with the election process to here problems with the printing of the ballots and the other complaints that came in so I really think that we need to get the Guam Election Commission to reevaluate what happened because this election once you got something wrong from the onset from the beginning where ballots are not printed correctly where one side of a ballot is not there like the Democrat side and the Republican side is the only one that's there then you have to revaluate what is this election about. But it was slow and I hope that it will pick up the tempo because independents make up 70% of our island they don't vote in the primaries but I hope that they will clean this thing up so we can go out and campaign well and make the determine on whose going to be the next governor in November."

If successful in November Gutierrez says he will call the community together and plan a vision for Guam to extricate it from its debt and will drive the economy by seeking off island investments.
