Samoa News reported in Wednesday’s Campaign Trail 2012 that the reason Tualauta Candidate Vui Florence Saulo was unable to attend the Tafuna Elementary Forum was due to medical reasons, which is what participants in the forum were told by its organizers.

However, Vui sent Samoa News a copy of the letter that was given to “Rodney Jensen and the Level 8 Class” of Tafuna Elementary School, explaining that she would be unable to attend the Forum because of her tentative schedule due to her elderly mother’s medical conditions, which could necessitate her “traveling off island during the time of the Forum.”

She noted in her letter to the class that she considered it an honor to have been invited, but unfortunately “in addition to my political and professional obligations, I also have a duty to my family, especially my mother who is very advanced in age.”
