The End Credits

Like most films it starts and ends with credits; but, in the CNMI it seems that when getting a federal financial funding it ends with who should get the proper credit for it.

News today says that the local administration is slamming the NMI representative for holding the credits all to himself for the federal grants and financial assistance the Mariana Islands has been receiving so far. Gov. Fitial said in the report, "Things are just not that simplistic and I challenge him to prove that the CNMI has received even a dollar to date because he simply asked for it.”

So this is the issue now? For real? Come on. Is it not enough that the CNMI people benefit from the whole thing? Or is the reason why this has come up is because the local admin is on outright support for the other candidate running against Kilili this upcoming election?

Just asking....

Don't Disconnnect Yet

Due to delays of government paydays some lawmakers implored to the Commonwealth Utilities Corp. to delay the disconnection process of government employees' power, water or wastewater at their homes.

Senators Ayuyu and Crisostimo according to reports said, "“We therefore request your consideration for government employees who, because their pay is delayed by up to a week, face disconnection. Should these employees request your assistance to temporarily prevent a disconnection, we ask you to work with these consumers to the greatest extent possible."

Ok. We can't blame these government employees to have delays since the CNMI has one of the most expensive utility fees in the world. Many of the residents here have been saving by not using their AC's that often anymore. Can you just imagine a 25 square feet condo unit or living space will have at least $275 CUC bill per month...unbelievable? Nope. This is for real. Can you just imagine those with bigger houses? However, the residents have no choice but pay for it or else they wouldn't have power at home.

For the longest time, the CNMI residents have been ripped off by this incredible CUC utility fees. Who wouldn't be angered by the former Lt. Gov. Villagomez's rydlyme scam and the issue that the local government paid for his family and his home's utility fees while he was in his post?

As for CUC, it has no choice as well since the CNMI has been importing the supplies for the power and it is not cheap....

Some say to privatize CUC for improvement of service. Is it really the answer?

You tell me....

Oh. What's with the AG admitting he had attended and "arranged" a campaign event before the official commencement of the campaign trail for the NMI Representative?

Now he has recently "recused" himself from any poll matters for this election?

(story on Saipan Tribune)

So, do you think Rep. Kilili stands a chance on this election when the local government actually is on outright support for the Team Jacob? (Camacho Team)

Ah, I wonder what the Team Edward has to say....
