Guam - Reacting to President's Barack Obama's State of the Union Address, Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo said that Congress must also do its part to address the many challenges that continue to face our country, which includes helping turn around Guam's unemployment rate which is nearly twice the national average. She said she would continue to work to find economic opportunities for the people of Guam.
She added the President's continued support for the Asia-Pacific rebalance will help provide job opportunities as well as strengthen regional prosperity and stability. Bordallo says she will also continue to work with officials to open up additional tourism opportunities under the Guam-CNMI Visa Waiver Program.
Meanwhile joining Bordallo at the address was United States Air Force Lt. Joseph Crisostomo. He is a former Barrigada resident and graduated from George Washington High School in 2002. Lt. Crisostomo was invited to be her guest as a gesture of gratitude to all the men and women from Guam who serve in our armed forces.
