THE House of Representatives on Thursday honored the life and legacy of Froilan C. Tenorio, the fourth governor of the CNMI, with House Resolution 21-05, which also extended their sincere condolences and sympathies to the family of the late former chief executive.

Tenorio passed away on May 4, 2020 in Fort Worth, Texas. He was 80 years old.

The House resolution was authored by Rep. Janet U. Maratita, who, on behalf of her colleagues, presented a framed copy to the family of the former governor.

Maratita said the Commonwealth is inevitably “enriched by the noble and selfless efforts of exceptional individuals who devote their lives to public service,” and among them was the former governor.

Maratita said Tenorio as governor emphasized fiscal responsibility. He encouraged the success of the private sector, helped reorganize the CNMI government, and was distinguished and praised for his commitment to grow the local economy, she added.

She noted that the Beach Road pathway, which was built during the Tenorio administration and has been named in his honor, is a “monumental” part of the Commonwealth, is frequently utilized by both residents and tourists alike.

Maratita said Tenorio taught her that people have the right to change their minds, and fondly recalled how he was also a strong advocate for “no nonsense.”

Next week, House members will also adopt a resolution honoring the life and legacy of former Speaker Jose Lifoifoi, 83, who passed away on May 18, 2020.
