He said he used his office funds to pay for the installation of a new fence, the pressure washing, and repainting of the court.

“I want to give our youth and other community members sports facilities they can enjoy,” he said.

The tennis court restoration project is expected to be completed this month, he added.

Last month, Camacho completed the repair of a basketball court, which is now being used by the youth, he said.

As for his mural-painting project in Tanapag, Camacho said he is thankful that his project was recognized during the general membership meeting of Marianas Visitors Authority last week.

“I am extremely grateful our project was featured and highlighted,” he added.

He said he will complete phase three of the mural project at Kensington Saipan before the end of the year.

The murals aim to depict the beauty of Precinct 4, Camacho said, adding that he wants the community to take pride in local art and the cleanliness of their precinct.

The murals are also tourist attractions, which but benefit the local community, he said.

Camacho said he is likewise working closely with the mayor’s office on the repair of Precinct 4 roads damaged by the recent heavy rains.

“It requires funding so I’m asking for the public’s patience as we work on getting that for the mayor,” he added.

He said Saipan Mayor David M. Apatang has been very responsive to requests made by lawmakers on behalf of their constituents.
