by Mindy Aguon

Guam - Attorney General Alicia Limtiaco has made history yet again.  Today the U.S. Senate passed Limtiaco's nomination to serve as U.S. Attorney for Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.  President Barack Obama submitted the nomination two months ago. 

According to Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo, the U.S. Senate unanimously approved Limtiaco's appointment. 

The daughter of Guam was the first woman to be elected the island's attorney general and is now the first woman to be U.S. Attorney for Guam and the CNMI.  Bordallo congratulated Limtiaco on her confirmation today, saying she is a "qualified and dedicated public servant". 

Current U.S. Attorney Lenny Rapadas also sent his congratulations to Limtiaco, saying in a statement, "Alicia and I have worked together for a long time and I look forward to making her transition to her new position as smooth as possible."
