Saipan Tribune: Chamber, NMC to host Candidate Debate (June 29, 2018)

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.

The Saipan Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit organization with over 160 members to date. The SCC was founded in 1959 and incorporated in 1976. It is the largest private business organization in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. The Chamber works to promote and protect the business, economic, and civic interest, and general health and welfare of our islands.
