Board of Parole chair RB Camacho resigns


Ramon Blas “RB” Camacho has resigned from the Board of Parole, where he served a total of 17 years and was its chairman for 15 years, to focus on his campaign for the Saipan mayoral race in the Nov. 8 general election.

Camacho disclosed to Saipan Tribune yesterday that he submitted his resignation letter to the Office of the Governor two weeks ago.


Camacho’s term expires in April next year. Each term as a BOP member is six years.

When asked about the matter yesterday, Torres said he will accept Camacho’s resignation. “I also want to thank him for his many years of service on the board and being a chair,” Torres told Saipan Tribune.

Camacho is hoping that whoever is the new Board of Parole chairperson will consider looking at the BOP’s mission.

Camacho has also been serving as chairman of a federal program, Farm Service Agency CNMI Committee, for 11 years now.

Meanwhile, Camacho also clarified yesterday that if the NMI Democratic Party does not have any candidate for mayor, he is asking it to consider endorsing him.

Editor’s Note: This article was updated to correct that Camacho’s term with the Board of Parole will expire in April 2023, not this year.
