Butler's Champion says he won't give up

by Michele Catahay

Guam - Local business owner Gerry Champion says despite the low turnout to a meeting that he hosted at his family business today, he doesn't plan to give up. He's had to close down a portion of Butler's in Sinajana because road construction and a median placed in front of his store has caused his business to move at a snail's pace.

"I was going to have this meeting and I'm sorry there doesn't seem to have a lot of concerned businesses. I don't know. I'll have to be Don Quixote and fight the windmill myself, I guess. I just don't know."

Champion is hoping to get nearby businesses to come together to bring their concerns to the Department of Public Works. Three people attended including senators Ben Pangelinan and Tony Ada, the latter of whom introduced legislation that would exempt businesses located in the vicinity of road construction projects from paying fees and excise taxes for one year.
