Calvo looking forward to spirited campaign

Guam - During Thursday's Democratic Party meeting, former governor Carl Gutierrez criticized the current administration on how it believes they can move Guam forward. He further questioned whether the route to pay tax refunds was the right way and whether problems with the island's prison could have been addressed during these past four years. He even claimed the Gutierrez administration managed with half of this current administration's budget.

Governor Eddie Calvo responds by saying he's open to comparing what his administration has done and Gutierrez's track record of governance. "I think there's a lot to compare most of the issues that we've had to fix, we look back 20 years, we see the origins of how these problems started and the island of Guam has for several decades has gone through some difficult times and a lot of that through some of the leadership lapses of the past so because of that we feel that we've made a lot of progress, but we really came out of a deep whole, this island and though we've made this progress, there is so much more that we would like to see accomplished in terms of raising the quality of life for the people of Guam."

The Calvo/Tenorio team recently opened its campaign headquarters in Hagatna along with unveiling its new campaign logo. Calvo says should Gutierrez officially run, he looks forward to a very spirited, positive campaign that focuses on the issues. Calvo adds should he get re-elected, this would be his last campaign.
