Senator Limtiaco won't pursue re-election

Guam - Someone who won't be putting up any election signs this time around is Senator Michael Limtiaco, who confirmed today he would not be seeking re-election.

The freshman senator says just as when he first campaigned two years ago and throughout this term, he spoke about how a position in the Guam Legislature should not be a career. "I would encourage my colleagues and anyone trying to pursue this to not view as it a career but view it as a public service, and to come in and do what they can and advocate for a better Guam and try and pursue legislation that benefits Guam," he explained.

Limtiaco says he may pursue another term possibly 10 years from now as the legislature may be different than it is today. He further adds he would love to be part of a legislature that moves toward part-time status. As for whether he would introduce a bill pursuing a part-time legislature during the remainder of this term, he is unsure as he doesn't believe he has the support. He says an initiative or referendum down the line could be a possibility.
