Guam - One person noticeably absent from this afternoon's march on Fena Lake featuring senators of the 31st Guam Legislature was Governor Eddie Calvo. "I do look forward to working with our congresswoman and Speaker [Judi] Won Pat on a visit to any area including Fena, but it has to coincide with the schedules," Calvo told KUAM News.

"I want to see what I can do to work with the speaker, in fact my office has been in contact with the speaker in setting what day or hours that we can be available to do a walk thru in any area in Guam," he continued. "I would like to but we have a very busy schedule and I would love to help her and meet with here and visit certain areas but these are things that you can't just do with a half and hour or days notice."

Governor Calvo remember during his State of the Island Address said he would join the legislature on the March on Fena, but as you heard he wasn't given enough notice to participate and scheduling prevented his participation.  Likewise the governor in his address said he would take the issue to the U.S. Supreme Court if need be.
