CONCACAF President Jack Warner joins congress

Jack Warner, CONCACAF president and FIFA vice president, won a seat in Trinidad & Tobago's House of Representatives in a landslide victory in the Chagunas West region. Warner, who will only accept a $1 salary, told the Trinidad Express that he spent a lot of money on the campaign: "I eh telling yuh how much, but we fought the good fight, but it was a bit expensive, but it was worth it."

Warner, the UNC Alliance's co-leader, has been president of CONCACAF (North, Central America and Caribbean region) since 1990.

He has served on FIFA's Executive Committee since 1983, is the longest standing member of that body, and has been a FIFA vice president since 1997.
