Platform:
My Platform Objectives include:  
- Principled Leadership 
- Protecting Guam's Quality of Life 
- Greater Self-Governance 
- As a candidate for the 33rd Guam Legislature, I pledge my commitment to integrity and professionalism in public service. I will focus on policies that are responsible both today and in the foreseeable future. Lasting change begins with a broad vision. Thus, a comprehensive approach to laws that reflect the goals and priorities of all our people (not just a select few) and advance a position of greater self-governance for Guam, is necessary.  
"Your Voice" is my slogan because I believe the success of our villages and our island rests to a significant - extent upon our representative democracy.  When policy choices and problems arise, people should be able to turn to their elected representatives at all levels to make their voices heard.  Making your views known is important - because the Legislature considers issues that touch nearly every part of our lives including education, public safety, health, economic development, recreation, transportation, taxation, environmental protection and cultural preservation. 

With my unique personal background, education, extensive work experience, and reputation for honesty and fairness, I believe I am prepared to be a trusted and effective leader in the Guam Legislature.

Campaign Slogan:
"Your Voice"
