New year message
Happy New Year, Marianas!
As we close this year and welcome a new one, we want to thank all our government employees for your hard work and service this year. While 2019 was a challenging one for all of us in the midst of our recovery, we appreciate your sacrifices, strength and resiliency.
We are hopeful that 2020 will be a better year for our economy and our islands. Our recovery will be moving faster through our partnership with FEMA and all our other federal partners. We now have the resources to speed up the building of our homes and schools so we can build a Marianas stronger than any storm.
As we begin a new year and a new decade, let us renew our bonds with one another and remind ourselves that we are one family working together to build a more prosperous Marianas.
Gov. Ralph DLG Torres
Lt. Gov. Arnold I. Palacios
