Only Blas RSVPs for congressional debate

Posted: Updated:

Guam - It appears Frank Blas Jr, will be flying solo tomorrow night. Evidently Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo did not confirm her participation in tomorrow night's UOG Great Congressional Debate. The deadline to agree to the debate was last Wednesday and only Senator Frank Blas Jr. confirmed participation. 

The debate is being hosted by the Guam Political Science Student Association and the 51st Student Government Association. It is scheduled for Tuesday, October 30 at UOG.

Blas wrote, “In recognition of the hard work by the student organizers from the University of Guam, and in behalf of the people of Guam who deserve to hear an explanation of the failures and missed opportunities as a result of our current representation in U.S. Congress, I am disappointed with Delegate Bordallo’s decision not to participate in UOG’s Great Debate. Other than giving her the opportunity to explain her actions, the debate would have given the community a chance to hear from Ms. Bordallo and me on how we intend to work on our island's agenda in Washington. I guess with all the money she has and continues to raise for her campaign, she believes that she can be re-elected by flooding the newspapers, TV channels, and radio shows with commercials and ads written by other people. Our community deserves to hear directly from us, and the UOG Debate would have been a great event to do just that.”
