Guam - Legislative executive director and designated legislative representative on the Government of Guam's negotiating team for the insurance rates for Fiscal Year 2011, Vince Arriola, is not allowed to comment on his role on the team.  Arriola issued a statement today saying his capacity as a member of the negotiating "was to reflect the interests of all legislative employees." 

He went on to write, "I never briefed any member of the Guam Legislature on the proceedings of the negotiating team" as he is bound by the confidentiality requirements of the negotiating team.  Speaker Judi Won Pat selected Arriola to be the legislative employees' designee on the negotiating team. 

Department of Administration Human Resources Administrator Cecilia Martinez told KUAM News that Arriola was fully capable and experienced.  Additionally she says that each of the representatives on the negotiating team voted in favor of the insurance rates negotiated for the coming fiscal year.
