Guam - Tuesday marked the deadline for all public officials to file full financial Disclosure Statements and Conflict of Interest Reports. Executive director Maria Pangelinan says out of 117 public officials who are required to file their FDS, 48 filed an extension for 180-days.
Some of those reporting at the highest total assets on a cost basis include Guam Community College president Mary Okada at $2.7 million, Public Health director James Gillan at $2.2 million, and Public Auditor Doris Flores Brooks at $2.1 million. Other public officials reporting over a million in total assets include Governor Eddie Calvo, Commission on Decolonization executive director Ed Alvarez, Rev & Tax director John Camacho, Guam Housing Corporation president Martin Benavente, Veterans Affairs administrator John Unpingco, and UOG president Dr. Robert Underwood.
She adds the FDS allows public officials to be transparent with the community.
