Did snub justify Guam First Commission?

Posted: Updated:

Guam - This week's senatorial snub is another reason why Speaker Judi Won Pat is calling on Governor Eddie Calvo should call the first meeting of the Commission on Decolonization and the Guam First Commission. Governor Calvo was dissed this week by a delegation of 15 senators that conducted a gas and go at Andersen Air Force Base without even extending a phone call, or visit with the island's chief executive.

"I say enough to the trickery and snobbery of those who choose to turn their backs on the People of Guam. You have aroused the indignation of the Chamorro People and all others who call Guam their home for too long now, and this is not acceptable," she said.

Won Pat in her weekly address added 15 of the nation's senators sent a loud message on the tarmac of Andersen Air Force Base: not a minute to spare nor a gesture extended to see the face of a people who faithfully served alongside other Americans for the advancement of liberty, and freedom from political, economic, and cultural oppression.
