Umatac residents visit Adelup

Guam - The southern village of Umatac has not lost hope. Mayor Dean Sanchez along with other concerned parents of F.Q. Sanchez Elementary School visited Adelup today in hopes of inspiring Governor Eddie Calvo to reconsider the Guam Education Board's decision to shut down the southern campus. "It is with his executive powers, through the organic act that allows him to make the decision overall," he said.

Mayor Sanchez emphasizes that today's visit was not a protest. Last Friday a public hearing was held in support of Bill 257, introduced by Senator Dennis Rodriguez, Jr., which provides $157,000 to keep the Umatac school open.

The governor was unavailable to meet with the residents due to prior commitments.
