Guam - The Mayors Council of Guam discussed prop a during its special meeting this morning, saying the mayors need to work at informing the senior citizens in their villages more about the initiative because many are unaware of what it specifically proposes. And while they have yet to vote on a draft resolution presented by Sinajana mayor-elect Robert Hoffman earlier this month opposing the initiative, Yigo mayor Robert Lizama expressed his concern saying he felt chastised at the last meeting for stopping the motion to approve the resolution.
He said, "I'm not saying I'm for it or against it - I think as a leader of our community we have to have that time to read these things and yes I read it, and yes, I'm convinced that there are issues that are going to impact our island but to be given that resolution at the way it was presented without an initiative and two without the colleagues putting his or her name on that document and putting Mother Teresa I think is not fair for this body to be provided in future initiatives."
The mayors meanwhile are set to vote on the resolution at their next regular meeting in October.
