Guam - Earlier this month the Mayors Council of Guam voted to have
all the island's mayors and vice mayors undergo drug tests. According to
executive director Angel Sablan, he's not sure if any of the mayors have
actually taken a test, but says no results have come in yet.
"Nobody should be afraid of it and if you know that you're
clean and know that you're not doing anything illegal then there's no need to
worry, and we just want to show the public that even their leaders, if we
expect our employees to be tested then we should have our leaders tested as
well," he said.
He says the tests costs $40 each for the total of 26 mayors and
vice mayors along with himself. Meanwhile, it was also this month when the both
the speaker and vice speaker's office conducted drug tests for their offices.
All of one of the employees of those respective offices have been tested with
results coming back negative. The legislature's drug-free work policy meanwhile
is still under review by its legal counsel.
