Speaker Edwin also delivered remarks, thanking Governor Oliver for inviting him. He pledged to continue to work for the people of Pohnpei as the Speaker of the Pohnpei State Legislature, as the reorganization of the Pohnpei State Legislature draws near in January of 2022. He extended season’s greetings from the Legislative branch to Governor Oliver, the Executive branch, and all of Pohnpei.
