Platform:

 

I would like to continue the work that will ensure that our families are provided the adequate health care necessary to produce positive, healthy lifestyles, inclusive of health and wellness programs and activities to promote healthy living.  The communicable and non-communicable diseases from heart disease, diabetes to cancer, continue to take a toll on our people, especially on our government coffers.  The millions of dollars we spend each year on our ""sick care"" system far outweighs what little we spend on keeping our community healthy and well.

 

I intend to work hard to take a paradigm shift by focusing our energy and resources on keeping our people healthy and well rather than working to cure them from many of the most preventable diseases in the first place. 

 

This goal is paramount for the thousands of children, youth, adults and manamko' who call our island home.  A healthy family means a healthy community.  A healthy community translates into more resources for education, public safety, job creation, and so much more that will continue to make Guam a special place that it is.

 

Campaign Slogan:
"Standing Up for You"
