Guam - Chairperson for the Legislative Committee on Education Speaker Judi Won Pat says the reason a confirmation hearing hasn't been held yet for the governor's appointees is because she's still waiting for the application packets to be sent down from Adelup for three of the nominees. Officials at the Governor's Office say they too are waiting for the packets to be turned in.
More importantly though, the speaker feels the board could have still discussed the budget during their special meeting Thursday night. "They could meet and have a dialogue kind of vent out all the concerns that are there, but they cannot make any final decisions, that means when the time comes after their confirmation that they would've done a lot of this preliminary work they could have gone and just formalized it right then and there," she told KUAM News.
Won Pat says is hoping to hold the confirmation hearings for the Guam Education Board appointees on February 16.
