Fitial a No Show at Kilili's Inauguration

The news that Governor Fitial and wife, Josie didn't show up at Kilili's inauguration was published in both the Marinas Variety and the Saipan Tribune. Why didn't the governor attend after all the publicity on how he, wife Josie, and "special counsel" Willens would be there?  


Death of an Industry
The last three remaining garment factories on Saipan, Uno Moda, US CNMI Development and MGM, will close down by February 2009 according to the Saipan Tribune The closure of the factories will swell the already bloated sector of unemployed foreign and resident workers making competition for the few remaining job openings even harder.

Fitial was standing next to Bush as Kilili was being sworn in. He was 10 feet in front of me and I have the pictures to prove it.

Angelo is correct. Gov. Fitial can not be in two places at one time.

Who paid for the trips for Gov, Josie, Howard? Taxpayers?
