Guam - Guam is smack dab in the middle of campaign season, not just for politicians but for the Committee to Keep Guam Good. Tomorrow the group will launch its campaign to voters asking them to vote down Proposal "A", the for-profit bingo initiative. The committee was reactivated and has been meeting over the last several weeks working on opposition arguments and a formal campaign as they seek to once again defeat this latest initiative.
Committee member Benett Dungca says the group has been researching the initiative to determine its impacts on the community and the proposal's effort to legalize mechanical bingo machines on Guam. "So I would like to invite everybody to seriously look at what they're saying the bingo is and what we're trying to help them understand that there is something wrong with that Proposal 'A' and we're asking our people from Guam who are voters and people who could encourage voters to vote no on proposal," he said.
The press conference is scheduled for tomorrow at eleven in the morning at Sinajana Community Center. Meanwhile the deadline for the public to submit comments for or against the bingo initiative to the Guam Election Commission is this Saturday, September 22.
