Biography:
Dr. Judith T. Won Pat is a trusted leader, who puts Guam First. She has led the Guam Legislature as the first female Speaker for the past three-and-a-half terms, bringing values, vision and courageous style to the floor. In her eight terms as senator, Dr. Won Pat has led with integrity and purpose, fulfilling her family’s legacy to serve the people of Guam.  

Dr. Won Pat is the daughter of the first speaker of the Guam Legislature and Guam’s first Representative in the United States Congress, Antonio B. Won Pat. She is currently the Chairperson of the Committee on Education, Public 

Libraries and Women's Affairs, and has chaired this committee since the 30th Guam Legislature. She received her Doctorate in Educational Leadership from the University of San Diego and completed her Master's Degree in Guidance and Counseling from the University of Guam. She continues to be a strong advocate for Education and Women's Affairs, and a champion for the overall quality of life throughout her home island of Guam and throughout Micronesia. 

Dr. Won Pat is one of the founders of Fuetsan Famalao'an, or ""Women's Strength,"" a women's coalition created to address cultural and social issues impacting Guam’s women and youth. She also currently serves as president of the Association of Pacific Island Legislatures, a platform through which she tackles issues such as human trafficking, universal health care, free trade among the islands, and the establishment of a Micronesian cruise industry. 

In the current 32nd Guam Legislature, Dr. Won Pat introduced thirty-five bills, and most of these bills have become public laws that provided funds for new police cars; Medicaid; the expansion of Okkodo High School; the renovation of Simon Sanchez High School; the modernization of the rest of our island’s schools; the construction of new buildings at both the University of Guam and the Guam Community College; assistance to first-time homeowners; the installation of solar energy and security systems at the Department of Education; the operations of the Department of Revenue and Taxation and the Department of Administration; and the groundbreaking of the new Tiyan Parkway.

Platform:
If re-elected, Dr. Won Pat will continue to creatively introduce laws aimed at improving the overall quality of life for the people of Guam. She will uphold her pledge to support small business owners by providing new opportunities for them to thrive and grow, enhancing our economy and creating more jobs. She will work to reduce the recidivism rate in our prison and assist our hospital in improving operations to provide better services and care. She will also continue to support the advancement of Guam’s schools. She wants to specifically focus on developing and supporting polices and programs that promote the overall wellness and well-being of our school children, directly addressing issues such as drug and alcohol abuse; high rates of teen pregnancy, STDs, and suicide; child abuse and family violence; and other concerns affecting the health of our island’s children and future. 

Campaign Slogan:
"A Trusted Leader Who Puts Guam First"
