Guam - Joint Guam Program Office director Joe Ludovici will head back to the mainland tomorrow after his first trip to Guam since he assumed the position formerly held by David Bice. Ludovici spent the week meeting with Governor-elect Eddie Calvo, the Consolidated Commission on Utilities, officials from the racetrack and yesterday he met with a small group of Guam's senators.

"I hope to do more of that when I come back be able to visit them in their chambers and say, 'OK, what are the issues?'" he said. "As I first noted when I first came here, I didn't intend to drill down on a particular issue such as Pagat or anything else but those will come up as we continue this relationship we can continue to Probe and explore some of those more specific issues."

He says when he returns to Guam he hopes to meet with president of the University of Guam and visit the CNM9 to meet with Governor Ben Fitial. Ludovici says there is an interest by his leadership, particularly Secretary of the Navy Jacklynne Pfannestiel, to increase dialogue with Guam officials, saying this will translate into visits from Pfannistiel to the executive and legislative branches on some of the more complicated issues surrounding the buildup.

Ludovici plans to return to Guam in the next couple of weeks.
