Governor meets with Office of Economic Adjustment

by Sabrina Salas Matanane

Guam - Governor Eddie Calvo recently returned former congressman Ben Blaz's funeral at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia. During that trip, Governor Calvo had an opportunity to meet with the Office of Economic Adjustment's director Patrick O'brien on the current appropriations for areas outsides the gate of the military.

"With OEA's responsibility for mitigation in communities that are impacted either through downsizing or through realignments that is their key focus so for me, it was getting a clear understanding of those appropriations outside the gate, looking at certain timetables, and looking at also the role of OEA and the formation of the EAC which is the economic advisory council which will be working in tandem with the EIS which will be put out in the next few months," he said.

In regards to military cuts recently announced by defense secretary Chuck Hagel, Governor Calvo says it is of grave concern especially to the National Guard on Guam. He adds the matter was previously discussed during a his trip to Hawaii where he met with officials from Pacific Command.
