Guam - During a public hearing on legislation related to charter schools, Senator Michael San Nicolas expressed his frustration with how he believes the Guahan Academy Charter School was used as a pawn in the controversy over the pending government of Guam contract with Core Tech. As we reported the school was issued an eviction notice because it did not have a contract for its Tiyan location. Adelup included the charter school property in its contract to purchase Tiyan lands. "When that lease popped up and the eviction notice went out I said what on earth is going on here? Why would our government put our people in this kind of a situation," said Sen. San Nicolas.

 The democrat lawmaker said it eventually became clear that the Calvo administration wants to go into a deal with Core Tech to acquire the properties, "I've seen it several times already in my short time here at the Legislature,  the administration creates a crisis that forces the government to making a deal and unfortunately in this instance we have the Guahan Academy Charter School being used as the victim to manipulate the government to go into a deal with Core Tech," the Senator said during the hearing.

 The Core Tech contract was approved by the Attorney General's Office on Christmas Eve, it is currently under review at Adelup. Governor Eddie Calvo is currently off island.
