THE gubernatorial inauguration committee has invited some officials from Washington, D.C. to witness the inauguration of Gov. Ralph DLG Torres and Lt. Gov.-elect Arnold I. Palacios on Jan. 14, 2019, committee chairman Matthew Deleon Guerrero said.
Deleon Guerrero said the committee is still awaiting confirmation from the invited U.S. officials who, he added, have significant relationships with the Commonwealth.
Deleon Guerrero said the inauguration will be simple yet very significant.
He added that it will highlight the recovery efforts of the administration and discuss its plan for the next four years.
“We are still in recovery stage so the governor and the lt. governor-elect want to celebrate the resilience of the community, and to share their ideas so we can be more resilient in the next four years.”
The governor is still off-island but is expected to be back on Friday.
Lt. Gov. elect-Arnold I. Palacios said he is looking forward to a stronger and more resilient community.
“I am ready to work in my new capacity and I am ready to work with everybody. We cannot do this alone, we need everybody’s help,” he added.
