In preparation for the Okinawa Prefecture Nago City Mayoral Election next year on February 4, the current Nago City Mayor Susumi Inamine, 72, held a press conference on August 23 at the Nago City Labor Welfare Center to formerly declare he would run in the election to seek a third term.

Mayor Inamine raised the new base construction as the major reason for him deciding to run for mayor again.

“I’m resolved to put an end to this issue.

With the help of Governor Onaga, I will stand firmly and exercise various powers and methods,” he emphasized.

 

Regarding the new base construction in Henoko, Nago City or the relocation of the U.S. military Futenma Air Station, he said, “I will maintain my conviction to the very end.

I will not let them construct a new base.

” He thereby expressed that he would adhere to his commitment to oppose the base construction.

 

Mayor Inamine was born in July 1945 and is from Mihara, Nago City.

He graduated from University of the Ryukyus and has been working at the Nago City Hall since 1972.

He has worked as the Chief of General Affairs, Treasurer, and Superintendent of Education.

He has been the Mayor of Nago City since January 2010.

 

City Councilor Taketoyo Toguchi, 56, is also planning to run in the mayoral election and plans to have a press conference at the beginning of September.
