PIBBA International President-Elect Neth Wins Re-Election


Congratulations to PIBBA International President-Elect, the Honorable Senator Dr. Shelten G. Neth, on winning the re-election for the 9th Pohnpei State Legislature during the general election held November 10, 2015. Senator Neth received the most votes with a very wide marginal lead at his election district. In the same general election and in the same election district, he was the voters’ first choice among the 4 official elected representatives. He also ran against former popular 2-term Governor John Ehsa. Kudos and God Bless, Senator Neth! We have confidence that you will continue to serve the people well.
