Delegate, gubernatorial debates in mid-September
The Saipan Chamber of Commerce, in collaboration with the Northern Marianas College, will host a Candidate Debate for the CNMI gubernatorial and U.S. delegate races in mid-September 2018.
These forums are offered in the effort to further educate voters on the issues of our island by presenting the opportunity to hear differing opinions and solutions, and for those who are unfamiliar with the various platforms of each candidate.
The Candidate Debate will occur over a two-day period to properly highlight each gubernatorial and U.S. delegate candidate. Gov. Ralph DLG Torres and former governor Juan N. Babauta have been invited to participate in the gubernatorial debate. U.S. Delegate Gregorio Kilili C. Sablan (Ind-MP) and Rep. Angel Demapan (R-Saipan) have both been invited to participate in the U.S. Delegate Debate.
Each candidate will be given equal time to answer questions submitted in advance by the general public. Time limits will be enforced fairly and equally in accordance with standard debate procedures. Additional details will be advertised as the event nears. The Chamber looks forward to working with the Northern Marianas College in preparation for this significant event. The Chamber welcomes the community’s input regarding current issues and future needs.
