Guam - A public hearing was held for the executive appointment of Vera Wu to serve as a member of the Guam Economic Development Authority's board of directors.

Wu received support from senators along with members from the United Chinese Association of Guam and the Chinese Chamber of Commerce, including Fred Horecky. "What I really like about her appointment, not only her personal attributes but her business knowledge that she has gained but this is kind of putting younger people from the next generation into positions of responsibility on Guam," he announced.

Wu was born and raised on Guam and earned a bachelor's in political science from the University of California at Santa Barbara and a law degree from Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles. She previously worked as a clerk for Judges Michael Bordallo and Elizabeth Barrett Anderson and currently works for Security Title and Pago Bay Resorts.

She told lawmakers she hopes to expand renewable energy and agricultural economic development on Guam.
