Democratic Party of Guam supports Obama initiatives

Guam - The Democratic Party of Guam have come out in support of several of the initiatives outlined in President Barack Obama's State of the Union Address delivered today.

Party chairman Senator Rory Respicio says he commends the president for highlighting the rising income inequality in our country. "Despite economic growth, this growing inequality is a continuing burden for all working families, and disproportionately falls on women in the workforce," Respicio says. "As we focus on the Hay Study plan before us for government of Guam workers, we must also be mindful of our private sector workforce and the need for parity in wages. We have to bridge that gap and address this growing disparity.

Party vice chairwoman Dr. Nerissa Underwood meanwhile also stood in support of the president's speech saying, "The President's new push to make high-quality pre-K available to every four year-old is important. If we can make this happen this will not only improve opportunities for our children but will help our economy as well."

Respicio says like President Obama, the Democratic Party of Guam believe in a need for bi-partisanship in all that we do to provide opportunities for all Guamanians and not just a select few.
