Guam - Island mayors have decided not to take a position on Proposition 'A', which seeks to legalize for-profit bingo only at the former Guam Greyhound facility. Yigo mayor Robert Lizama made a motion that the Mayors Council of Guam should not take a position on the initiative and instead leave it to the districts to decide. The motion was seconded by Talofofo mayor Vicente Taitague and was passed.
Ordot-Chalan Pago mayor Jessy Gogue, who overseas the Bingo Initiative Committee, has been tasked to coordinate meetings with groups for and against Prop "A" to speak with individual village centers if they request it. Attorney Ron Moroni, who filed the incorporation documents at the Department of Revenue & Taxation on behalf of the Guam Japan Friendship Village, was in attendance at today's meeting to answer any questions they had about the initiative.
Up until today no one has come forward on behalf of the group or the backers of the proposal to speak about their efforts to bring electronic bingo machines to the island.
