Senator Louise Muña pulls out of 2020 elections


Senator Louise Muña announced Friday that she would not be seeking another term in the Guam Legislature.

“After much consideration, I have decided not to move forward with my campaign.  I know that there will be much speculation as to why the sudden change of heart. To put it simply, I have other opportunities that I would like to explore and I feel now is the time,” said Muña.

This is Muña’s second term in the Guam Legislature and she was seeking a third.

In her release, the Senator says she has introduced numerous bills regarding health related issues, most focused on the affordability and accessibility of cancer treatment/screening.  Most notable of her accomplishments was the law permitting home cultivation of marijuana for pain management since medicinal marijuana was not implemented, as detailed in her release.

“Before being voted in as Senator, I have always been active in the community organizations such as Make-A-Wish Guam & CNMI, Guam Cancer Coalition, Guam Harmony Lions Club, Soroptimist International of the Marianas, and many other organizations that I continually donate my time to.  Public service is part of who I am and will always be.  I would like to thank everyone that has supported me throughout these 2 terms.  You are more than supporters; you are also my friends and part of my family. Thank you. God Bless.”
