GOP opposes Prop 'A'

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Saying it is incompatible with family values, the Republican Party of Guam announced their opposition to Proposal "A".  Chairman Mike Benito says if passed the initiative would give a gambling license to a single for-profit group before the government imposes rules and regulations to regulate their activities. 

The Committee to Keep Guam Good and the Archdiocese of Hagatna have launched a campaign opposing the initiative.  This Saturday is the deadline for those in the community who wish to submit arguments for or against the proposal.  The Guam Election Commission has already received three comments, one in support from Tumon resident Mark "Paps" Martinez, and two in opposition from Archbishop Anthony Apuron and resident Albert Silos. 

The GEC will ask the archbishop to redo his comments as they are in excess of the 500-word limit.
