Guam - Senator Frank Blas, Jr. outlined his plans for his first 100 days in office should he be elected as Guam's next congressman. Blas signed a contract with the people committing to do a number of things, including introducing legislation for war reparations and seeking compensation through congress or private foundations, calling for a congressional hearing to bring concerns of island veterans to the forefront, introducing legislation to allow a Philippine and China visa waiver program for Guam and calling for a congressional hearing with the department of interior to address the issue of unreimbursed costs and impacts of the Compacts of Free Association.
"I want to show that Guam is a perfect and pivotal and can be the focal point, not just to ensure our nation continues to be able to defend itself in the Asia-Pacific Region but Guam also stands ready to be the focal point for economic activity," he said.
Blas is going up against Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo in the delegate race.
