Guam - More candidates continue to file with the Guam Election Commission as exactly one week remains until the filing deadline. Today, joined by family and friends along with Lieutenant Governor Ray Tenorio and Yona mayor Ken Joe Ada, Roland Blas officially filed his candidacy under the Republican ticket.

"The reason why I'm running again for senator is because truly I have the heart, the compassion, the understanding and because of my 19 years in the Guam Legislature and the political arena, I know and feel the needs of our island and our people," he told KUAM News.

Blas is currently a special assistant to the governor and previously worked as the CAHA special project coordinator and for eight different senators in the Guam Legislature. Blas ran for senator in the 2012 election. He joins 12 other senatorial candidates who have already filed with the GEC.
