Guam - Senator Matt Rector has been served. An official notice of complaint was delivered to the lawmaker's offices on Thursday, along with the ethics complaint filed against him by Port Authority of Guam board of directors chairperson Monte Mesa.
Ethics Committee Legal Counsel Anthony Camacho is currently trying to determine if Rector violated the Guam Legislature's Code of Ethics and Standards, as was alleged. Mesa contends the senator has a conflict in carrying positions as a lawmaker and Guam Federation of Teachers president at the same time.
While concerns have been raised about delays in resolving the complaint filed against Rector, Ethics Chairperson Senator Judi Guthertz says the committee will follow the rules.
Attorney Camacho will also have a meeting with Rector giving the Democrat lawmaker an opportunity to make his own case before the legal counsel provides his findings to the ethics panel, which is tentatively scheduled for January 6.
