The seats are for five-year terms. Those running on the retiree side include incumbent and former UOG president Wilfred Leon Guerrero; incumbent and former speaker Joe T. San Agustin; and former Department of Labor director George Santos. For the active member seat, those running include DOA director Tony Blaz; incumbent and GPA computer operations supervisor James Duenas, incumbent and UOG vice president of administration and finance David O'brien and GHURA A/E manager Albert Santos. Those who do not win will be put on a succession list in the event a seat is vacated later in the term. Members of the fund including all retirees along with individuals with at least five years of GovGuam service may vote in the election. The election is set for Saturday June 14 at the Retirement Fund Building in Maite from 10am to 4pm.
