Guam – Senator Judi Guthertz wants the Attorney General of Guam to conduct a complete review of the contract for the construction of John F. Kennedy high school. She says contractor International Bridge Corporation failed to meet numerous expectations of GovGuam and the JFK community. Guthertz cites the litany of concerns from education and public works officials expressed during a roundtable at the Legislature this past week. She says its time to hold some feet to the fire. She questions, "Do we have any recourse in effectively stopping or reducing payment on the debt service given the performance and responsiveness—or rather a lack thereof—that we've experienced from the parties awarded the contract?"

Guthertz adds, "A full scale review by your office will help to ensure the people of Guam get what they paid for and nothing less."
