Guam - The Guam Election Commission sends a friendly reminder that this Friday marks the deadline for public officials who filed an extension to turn in their financial disclosure statements.

The FDS were due in April with approximately five dozen public officials filing an extension. GEC executive director Maria Pangelinan says the FDS are simply to hold public officials accountable. "We're public servants so what happens is people know how much we make as a salary and we should not become a millionaire overnight while we're sitting as a full-time public servant," she said.

She says those required to submit a FDS include elected officials, directors and deputies confirmed by the legislature, and any government employee that can procure or contract for the government based on their signature alone.
