Ignore it

I WANT to thank Mr. Don Farrell for writing his letter to the editor, published Sept. 11, 2020 in Marianas Variety, in which he urged CNMI voters to ignore election-year slander.

I have seen many elections in the Northern Marianas.  My family on both my mother’s and father’s sides had members who ran and were elected to top political posts, including the CNMI’s first governor, Dr. Carlos S. Camacho, and the late Sen. Olympio T. Borja who served in the former Congress of Micronesia and was a signatory to the Covenant which established the CNMI.  My brother, Jesse C. Borja, was the lieutenant governor under the late Gov. Froilan C. Tenorio.

In election years, I saw how some persons changed from their regular pleasant, positive selves to become very nasty and very negative. When the election was over, those persons returned to their regular positive selves again.

As Mr. Farrell wrote, we should judge Rep. Edwin Propst on his accomplishments, not on alleged sexual improprieties many years ago.  Incidentally, I have taught at Marianas High School and at Northern Marianas College for almost 30 years, and I have never heard of any rumors regarding Rep. Edwin Propst’s character.  Instead, I have heard how he, his wife Daisy, and their children bring supper and comfort to his sick mother each evening.
