Gillan defends man'amko not being targeted

Guam - Public Health director James Gillan is setting the record straight when it comes to Senator Ben Pangelinan's assertions the Calvo Administration is targeting the island's man'amko for cost-savings. The Mayors Council of Guam is taking over running the island's senior centers come March 1 after GGARP's two-year contract expires at the end of this month.

Gillan stressed he has been working with GGARP since last October to resolve their differences over a new contract that would fit into the government's financial constraints. He added that the decision to look for other avenues to conduct the operations of the senior centers was his and not the governor's. He added that he can only assume the senator didn't have all the facts.

He ended by stating "that should you write to me Ben, please spell my name right."
