Kilili congratulates President-elect Biden

Posted on Nov 09 2020

Delegate Gregorio Kilili C. Sablan (D-MP) issued the following congratulatory message to President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris:

“On behalf of the people of the Northern Mariana Islands, I congratulate President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on their hard-won and decisive victory. 

“The largest-ever voter turnout and the largest-ever popular vote for Biden and Harris confirm that democracy in America remains strong.

“For women, Asian Americans, and those of us whose parents were not citizens of this country, the election of Kamala Harris is particularly meaningful.

“During the eight years of the Obama administration I had numerous opportunities to talk informally with then-Vice President Biden about the Marianas and the aspirations of our people. He is an understanding and compassionate man; and I was an early endorser of his presidential candidacy.

“I look forward to working in the U.S. House of Representatives over the next two years to advance the Biden-Harris agenda of controlling the pandemic, reviving the economy, continuing the fight against poverty, moving forward on racial justice, advancing equality for all, and addressing the threat of climate change.  

“These are goals the people of the Marianas and Americans everywhere can come together to fully support.” (PR)
