Mid-week roundtable on buildup planned

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The status of the Guam military buildup along with the Draft Compatibility Sustainability Study will be discussed tomorrow morning before lawmakers during a roundtable discussion. Military Buildup Chair Senator Judi Guthertz tells KUAM that the Governor's Office along with Matrix Design Group, who came up with the CSS, are invited to provide updates, findings and any other gaps that need to be addressed to senators.

"All of this is important because we don't have a single entity representing the whole government on the buildup...and we're hoping the governor will empanel the Guam First Commission," she said. "But in the absence of that, in order for us to think with one voice and speak together as a team, we need to meet this way."

Senator Guthertz meanwhile says she hopes to hear any comment from Adelup office regarding Senator John McCain's very vocal agenda in killing the buildup on Guam. She continues to write the senator and other senators regarding these actions but has been told that they don't respond to constituents who are not part of their respective states.

The roundtable is set for Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock at the Guam Legislature's Public Hearing Room.
