i am interested in forming a group that will work on establishing a list of important things that we feel should be addressed in our government so that we could present it to our leaders and push for their passage...anyone interested?

So What Happened?

Hey all! Happy Valentine's day!!
I've gotten so many responses with y'all ladies interested in straightening out our community! That's sooooo refreshing! I've shared my interest in getting the poker initiative on next election's ballot. Jeanne shared her interest in looking into alcohol and rehabilitation. Get as many ladies who you think can help us get moving and we'll set up a monthly meeting somewhere...any ideas?

Tirohw Carol,

Are you now at NMC? I thought you're still at NMPASI. What happened? So, is that position still vacant? or has it been filled.

Anyway, yes I am interested in your group. So, what do we do?

I'm a proud single mother of a girl who will be 7 months soon. I am currently working for the Emergency Management Office, Office of the Governor. I love my Precious girl very much. I will stand up for my daughter, island and people. I am proud to say that my mom is Refalawash/Chuukese and my dad is Chamorro/Palau. I'm the second oldest of 3 kids. My mom also raised 2 boys who are still leaving with her and yes that makes us all 5 children.

I would like to be a part of the group that you are forming and please let me know what the agenda is for this group.

Thanks,
Mel

Good Day:

I am most interested in doing volunteer work. Especially in the field of rehabilitation. I have no social work experience but it is rewarding to me to follow in my Mom's footsteps.

I know there is a women's "refuge" center here in Saipan, but none in Rota or Tinian. I too would like to see that.

Also, I would like to push for a rehabilitation PROGRAM for the prisoners. I find that it is difficult for ANYONE who has family in there that is not being rehabilitated to return to society. More especially, those prisoners that have done something harmful to someone we know. *Their children and families suffer from the rejection of our community. Those persons may grow up in the same nature as their parents if not any better.

Hope this makes any sense.

Best Regards,
JWAguon

I'm with you there sister! Somehow the platforms were so thorough and prioritized all the right issues and concerns but today, I feel that we need to remind our government leaders on what we, the people, feel must be addressed.
