Meet Lt. Governor Arnold Palacios and Mayor Dave Apatang!

About the Candidates

Lt. Governor Arnold Indalecio Palacios and Mayor David Mundo Apatang are concerned about the future of the CNMI.

The struggles and financial hardship families are experiencing are a result of a declining economy, wasteful government spending, mass unemployment, high cost of living an inflation.

As candidates for Governor and Lt. Governor, Arnold and Dave firmly believe...

A Better CNMI is possible!

Lt. Governor Palacios and Mayor Apatang understand these hardships and stand committed in finding solutions that will help ensure a clean, safe, and vibrant community.

Throughout their time in office, Arnold and Dave continue to work towards fiscal accountability and a government that is honest, efficient, and serves residents equally; regardless of race, gender, religion and ethnicity.

Arnold and Dave's determination to seek higher public office is guided by their philosophy of serving others with transparency and putting the leadership skills they have gained throughout their careers to work in the service of others.

Their commitment to our Commonwealth is demonstrated through their more than 30 years of combined public service.

Whether it be through Arnold's extensive service as director of Fish and Wildlife, a legislator, Secretary of DLNR, and Lt. Governor...

Or Dave as a combat veteran, legislator and Mayor...

All these experiences have allowed them the opportunity to personally interact with our community during their most difficult moments and for that...

They have a better understanding of the needs of our people!

This November 2022,
We humbly ask for your vote of confidence!
Thank you, Si Yu'us Ma'ase, Ghilisow, Salamat Po, Gamsahabnida, and Xiexie!
