Q. What would you consider the top three issues or concerns facing the CNMI that demand immediate action from our government leaders?
A. For me, the three top issues or concerns facing the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas that demand immediate action are:
a. The economy
b. Investors, and
Q. What ideas can you bring to the table to revive the CNMI economy?
A. The Democratic Party has a plan to revive the economy if we win in this coming election, but I have my own ideas to bring to the table and one of that is to abolish all nonessential workers within all government divisions and reorganize the division to save money until the economy recovers. Also, to centralize all poker establishments on the island to prevent crime and violence in the community.
Q. What is your vision for the Commonwealth? And what are the steps that must be taken to achieve the vision?
A. My vision is a paradise for the entire people in this great Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas. To achieve this, we need to upgrade law enforcement in the community for the safety of all people.
Q. What needs to be changed in people’s ways of thinking and doing things as a means to help you achieve your vision? How can that shift in thinking be achieved?
A. People needs to think positive and do things right, not only for their own best interest but also for others, too.
