Governor preps for mainland trip

by Sabrina Salas Matanane

Guam - Governor Eddie Calvo is preparing for a trip he will be taking to the nation's capitol next month. According to a media release, the Regional Director of the Office of Economic Adjustment, Gary Kuwabara, is on island and met with the Governor and Lt. Governor Ray Tenorio, "I came to Guam to have a dialogue with Governor Calvo and Lt. Governor Tenorio," Kuwabara said. 

"I wanted to get a sense of the issues that are important to them, to help prepare for the upcoming National Governors Association and Interagency Group on Insular Areas events."  During his trip to DC in late February, Governor Calvo is scheduled to meet with President Barack Obama, other state governors and the interagency group dealing with issues for the U.S. Territories. "This past week, including today, really sets the tone for the relationship between my administration and President Obama's," Governor Calvo said. 

"I want to work with them, and they want to work with us.  It's a great collaborative effort.  It's also the attitude needed to get the best for Guam from this buildup, and to resolve a number of our longstanding issues with the federal government."
