Won Pat upset after struggle with Tenorio

Posted: Updated:
Democrat speaker Judy Won Pat reacted strongly to today's struggle she had for the gavel with Republican acting speaker Ray Tenorio, and hence, control of the 29th Guam Legislature. "It's really unfortunate and not gentlemanly for him to try to strong-arm me by trying to grab the gavel and pounding on it," she expressed. "And I just basically felt that if he was going to do that. Then he'll do it on his own and I'll continue to conduct myself in a professional manner."

The senator adds that this is a matter that the legislative body must resolve on their own, something she hopes will happen without the use of what she sees as dirty tactics. "I know attempts were made earlier to not turn on the TV, to not turn on the mics, locking the video room. You know, locking the main doors...you had to go around my understanding, too is that word has gone around that as soon as we recess they are going to change the locks for the entire building. That would be their way of thwarting the business of the people, and it's so sad if it's going to have to come to that," Won Pat shared.

She further stated that Democrats, in having the majority, should dictate who has the power and therefore the leadership of the Legislature.
