Full Video:

In a comprehensive sit-down interview with KKMP’s Gary Sword, Governor Ralph DLG. Torres on Wednesday directly addressed allegations made by the House Committee on Judiciary and Governmental Operations (JGO) regarding power and water billings from the Commonwealth Utilities Corporation (CUC) associated with the Governor’s official residence.

Governor Torres issued the following statement on the allegations made by the House JGO Committee:

“For months, I have publicly called for the House JGO committee to send me their concerns, so I can send them the truth. I sent a letter to the JGO Chair on Monday, November 8, 2021 with a one week deadline requesting for questions in writing, yet two weeks after the letter was sent, no response by the JGO was received.”

“Our people deserve the truth. Therefore, I have decided to end this political show before the holidays so we can all get back to doing real work for our people.”

“I recently sat down with Gary Sword, a trusted CNMI local media representative, about allegations made regarding CUC billings associated with the Governor’s official residence. This is the first in a series of videos that will provide factual information directly from me in response to the JGO’s allegations.”

“I look forward to sharing more of my responses to these political and abusive allegations to you the people directly in the coming weeks.”
