Congressman Michael San Nicolas has issued the following statement with regard to yesterday’s Guam Delegate election:

“As the general election concludes we want to thank all of the voters of Guam, Congressman Underwood, and Senator Castro. With such a humbling and overwhelming outcome, we need to turn our attention to our people over politics.

I would like to extend a sincere olive branch to Congressman Underwood and appeal to his humanity to consider a gentleman’s withdrawal from a runoff election.

It is not against the law for him to withdraw, and it is the right thing to do for our people.

Our financial and medical resources are already strained, and more importantly, our COVID cases are spiking, presenting more risks to our people today than when the primary election was cancelled months ago.

This is an opportunity for us to really come together for our people and put them before politics, and I humbly appeal for his consideration.”
