Guam - The Democratic and Republican parties of Guam are stepping up their campaigns as the August Primary draws near.

In Agana Heights last night, hundreds of people attended a meeting at the home of Francis and Angelica Mendiola

The incumbent gubernatorial team of Eddie Calvo and Ray Tenorio, candidate for Congress Margret Metcalfe, and 12 Republican senatorial candidates attended and answered questions from the crowd.

Addressing those in attendance Agana Heights Mayor Paul McDonald said "Four years ago, there was a line of people out my office every day asking, ‘Where is my tax refund? Where is my money? I have never seen a governor care more about the people than Eddie Calvo. Four years later, all of those people who were lined up at my office have all been paid their refunds. There’s no more line. And that’s because Eddie Calvo would rather pay the people and owe the bank.”

As for the Democrats, Party Chairperson Sen. Rory Respicio announced that their annual Jefferson Jackson Dinner will be held in September and will be co-chaired by Congresswoman Madeleine Z. Bordallo, Senator Tina Muna Barnes, and Sinajana Mayor Robert Hofmann.  The plans and the leadership were finalized at the last week's meeting of the Democratic Party's Central Executive Committee.  At the meeting, Congresswoman Madeleine Z. Bordallo publicly endorsed Governor Carl T.C. Gutierrez and Attorney Gary Gumataotao for Governor and Lt. Governor, as well as all 15 Democratic senatorial candidates.

    Government wants full payment from Ray Charles Tedtaotao Camacho

    It's a $750 wedding ring, but its significance and meaning, priceless. While Ray Charles Tedtaotao Camacho is serving life behind bars, the government argues he's not being held fully accountable for his crimes. Five years ago, Camacho kidnapped and raped Monique Baza after she made a quick run to the bakery for bread. Though it's a minimal amount for the ring that was never recovered, defense has motioned to waive restitution.  The government, in its response this week, argued ...More >>
