Guam - A protest letter from two of the three candidates running for president of the Guam Federation of Teachers claims the current leadership of the union continues to violate the GFT's constitution. With voting scheduled to start next week, they claim there's been no meetings to brief the candidates, stewards or anyone else who will be conducting elections at any site.

The protest goes on to allege that incumbent candidates are using the GFT's Working Family TV Show to promote their accomplishments.  Voting for the GFT Election starts next week. Meanwhile several of the candidates who are running for leadership positions in the GFT will be at GPO tomorrow from ten am to four in the afternoon outside Ross to Campaign.

They are Carol Somerfleck, James Nichols, Jennifer Berry, and Cris Manglona.
