I want to personally thank you for supporting this campaign, and for believing in a new way forward for Guam.

So thank you very much once again for sharing this journey. None of this would have been possible without your support.
In the week since the primary election the Congresswoman and her team have ... (read more)

In keeping with his commitment to the Democratic Party of Guam and the values to which he has dedicated his campaign, Karlo Dizon is throwing his support behind Democratic congressional incumbent Madeleine Z. Bordallo.
“The new way forward means pursuing a better quality of life for the people of Guam,” said Dizon. “I fully support Congresswoman Bordallo this coming November, and I look forward to working with the Congresswoman and a united Democratic Party in building a stronger economy for our island.”
Dizon will join forces with the ongoing efforts of the Bordallo campaign to win at a grassroots level and speak to issues important to the people of Guam.
In reaction to Dizon’s support, Congresswoman Bordallo said, "I am deeply honored that Karlo Dizon and his campaign team have agreed to join with us hand in hand for this most important election. He represents a fresh approach and new ideas for our Democratic party. His leadership has drawn new voters, who are young and energetic. We are proud Democrats together for a better Guam."
“We thank Karlo for all of his hard work in this campaign,” said Democratic Party Executive Director Carlo Branch. “He has made our party younger, stronger, and even more connected to the needs of everyday people. With the Bordallo and Dizon campaigns united, they along with Democratic senators and mayors are ready to win in November.”
Both campaigns are engaged in an effort to combine their existing organizations for the general election. Dizon will take up a central role in the Bordallo campaign wherein he will have influence at both policy and organizational levels.

The last few days have been so busy that I had to put the blog aside for the sake of campaign work. As I have managed to steal a moment alone now, I'll try to catch up a bit on the past few days.
The highlights include an excellent town meeting at the Obilio residence in Yigo, and a debate-turned-forum at Yigo gym organized by my alma mater Simon Sanchez High School. So yes, we've spent a lot of time in Yigo recently, but between radio and TV interviews, speaking appearances at UOG, meetings and waves, we've succeeded in hopping around the whole island yet again.
