Guam - During the Calvo/Tenorio’s village meeting in Yigo this past weekend, Margaret Metcalf announced her plans to run as the congressional candidate under the Republican ticket. A release from the campaign describes Metcalf as a businesswoman and a Guam daughter.
 
Metcalf grew up in Maite attending Wettengel Elementary and San Vicente School and graduating from Academy of Our Lady of Guam in 1966. Her grandfather arrived on Guam in 1898 as a Marine in the Spanish American War where he met and married Delores Quitugua Mariano and had 11 children. Metcalf previously worked at Guam Cable and was a candy striper at the Naval Hospital during the Vietnam War. 
 
Before Yigo residents, Metcalf says she’s running to give Guamanians a choice. 
 
“I’m here to offer a new better vision for the future,” she says. “I want to put Guam on the map and put our island on equal footing in Washington.” 
 
Metcalf has already picked up a packet at the Guam Election Commission. For the Democratic Party, Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo picked up a candidate packet seeking another term as Guam’s Delegate.
