Tiyan stakeholders encouraged to speak up

Guam - It appears stakeholders affected by the recent purchase of CoreTech in Tiyan are staying quiet.

This despite Governor Eddie Calvo's callout last week urging George Washington High School and Guahan Academy Charter School as well as village mayors to speak up against critics of the deal, specifically Senator Ben Pangelinan who called the contract a sweetheart deal and Senator Michael San Nicolas who claimed the Calvo Administration created a crisis with the charter school as pawn in order to push the CoreTech contract through.

As San Nicolas tells KUAM, he encourages the public to speak up and share their concerns, but to date, has not received a single phone call, email, or Facebook post on the matter. "I think people want us to do what's best for them. Every student, every parent wants to ensure educational needs are met, but also that our laws are followed," he said.

He adds that his office continues to review the CoreTech purchase, as there are so many moving parts to the deal.
