Guam - Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo fielded several questions from constituents over the weekend during town hall meetings she hosted in Dededo and Agat. She also spoke of three of her priorities including the fight for war reparations, the China visa waiver, and the military buildup.
Bordallo told constituents that despite the pending have billion dollars cuts in defense spending over the next decade, the buildup will happen, saying, "Ladies and gentlemen, we are getting the Marines. No matter what you hear, we are getting the Marines. It may not be as large a number as we thought - some people think it might be 6,000; a little bit less than the 8,000 planned."
KUAM taped the town hall meetings and will be broadcasting them at a later date on MCV Local 2. In the meantime Congresswoman Bordallo will be delving her annual address to the people of Guam next month.
