At the meeting of the NPC District Sunday, he told the group to go “full speed ahead” with the work for the elections.
He did not disclose the names of the NPC candidates, but confirmed that they already have candidates for congressman, mayor, vice mayor and for the 12 seats in the city council. They also have a line-up of alternate candidates, and added that they had a hard time choosing because of the number of good choices.
