Guam - After 20 years of serving the Guam Election Commission and the community, Attorney Cesar Cabot has turned in his resignation effective immediately. Cabot tells KUAM News he is compelled to devote more time to his private practice and that serving for the last two decades has truly been a "labor of love".
The resignation letter was sent to board chair John Taitano and Commission executive director Maria Pangelinan. His departure comes at a time when the GEC is party to four pending lawsuits in both the local and federal courts. Cabot says he will continue to provide legal services - pro bono - to the GEC if needed until another attorney is secured.
The GEC board meanwhile is scheduled to meet this evening, at which time Cabot's resignation letter will be presented.
