Limtiaco ready for new responsibilities

by Michele Catahay

Guam - Attorney General Alicia Limtiaco says she's humbled by the nomination by President Barack Obama to sit as the U.S. Attorney for Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands. The Senate confirmed her nomination late last week, and she says it's a position with great responsibility and one that should be taken very seriously.

Attributing her success to her family, Limtiaco, who also made history as Guam's first elected female AG, noted, "I'm very touched by the support of my family, my husband, my daughter, my parents and their friends and others who have been very encouraging, so it was very touching. And again, I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to Congresswoman [Madeleine] Bordallo who has also been very supportive in terms of this process and for her support in my nomination."

Limtiaco says she hasn't been briefed about when she's expected to begin her term or proposed timelines as it relates to her new position.
