Independent candidate from Precinct 4 files candidacy

(Press Release) — Sheila Therese Jack Babauta filed her independent candidacy at the Commonwealth Election Commission office on Thursday morning. She hopes to represent the people of Precinct 4 in the House of Representatives, 21st Commonwealth Legislature.

Surrounded by supportive family, friends, and voters, Babauta says she is excited for this upcoming election as voters will have more options to choose from.

 “I am young, passionate, and ready to serve my islands on a larger platform. Our strength is in the community, and with your vote of confidence, I will continue to work with the community to improve our villages and raise our children in a safe and healthy environment.”

Babauta’s vision for Precinct 4 is based on the values of Respect, Integrity, Service, and Empowerment or “RISE”.

She defines “RISE” as “Respect for our land, culture, and community through planned development. Integrity through transparent, regular, and accessible communication. Service through opportunities for our village residents that strengthen community relationships and the heart of our villages. Empowerment through education that supports our youth, health and well-being, small business, and higher education programs.”

After receiving encouragement from her family and peers to run this election, Babauta is humbled to submit her candidacy for the precinct that raised her. “It is time we take responsibility and do our part to contribute to a better CNMI. It is time we RISE together.”
