Bordallo: no more delays with president's trip

Guam - Guam should expect no further delays of President Barack Obama's visit to Guam, according to Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo.  She says the push back of the visit from March to June is actually a good thing - providing more time for the island to prepare for the commander in chief's arrival.

"We want the president to see as many people as he can," Bordallo told KUAM News.  To that end, Bordallo says she will continue to request the president fly into the Guam International Airport, but says she understands why security measures may dictate his plane may land on Andersen Air Force Base as planned.

"I'm sure they know more than we do when it comes to security for the president, but perhaps we can continue on that and see if he can land on at the international airport and meet with larger groups of people," the congresswoman added.  Bordallo says she does not know of any other possible changes to the president's agenda during his visit in June.
