Guam - Governor Eddie Calvo may have signed off on a revised purchase agreement for CoreTech in Tiyan, but it appears two lawmakers may be trying to stop the deal from going through.
In letters addressed yesterday to George Washington High School and Guahan Academy Charter School as well as each of the island's village mayors, Calvo asks that stakeholders rally against intentions to stop the deal by calling Senators Ben Pangelinan and Mike San Nicolas.
In the letter, Calvo provides both office numbers and e-mails for the senators who've publicly disapproved of the purchase. As we've been reporting, the CoreTech purchase would relieve overcrowding at GW and allow the charter school to stay at their Tiyan campus.
Senator Ben Pangelinan called the contract "a sweetheart deal", while Senator San Nicolas claimed the Calvo Administration created a crisis with the charter school as a pawn in order to push the CoreTech contract through.
