Calvo willing to collaborate on Commission

Posted: Updated:

Guam - While Senator Rory Respicio continues to make calls for the governor to convene the Guam First Commission, the island's chief executive says he's willing to work with the 31st Guam Legislature on correcting deficiencies in the original law. The attorney general found the law creating the Commission to be inorganic and the chief justice expressed concerns about the separation of powers between the three branches of government.

Calvo said, "I'm continuing to open up my arms to work with this legislature, but in the meantime we are moving forward in the spirit of the Guam First Commission and we will be having our forums to discuss these issues that are so important and that are encompassed in the Guam First Commission."

The governor added that the forums are more inclusive, allowing all members of the legislature and the community to be a part of voicing their concerns and expressing their thoughts on issues such as the buildup and longstanding issues such as war reparations and compact impact. 

The governor's second community forum will be held this Saturday at the Adelup Large Cabinet Conference Room from 1-3 in the afternoon.
