Guam - Due to the untimely passing of Senator Ben Pangelinan, acting chair Vice Speaker BJ Cruz led a confirmation hearing for five appointees to the Guam Historic Preservation Review Board.

Current board chairman Michael Makio, who is also up for confirmation, spoke fondly of the four other appointees, saying, "These four nominees are wonderful examples of the kind of leadership we were hoping to take us to the next levels for both of the boards."

Along with Makio, the four other appointees are Richard Olmo, Joaquin Perez, Pale Eric Forbes and rebecca duenas. For the review board, Makio says its goal is to raise awareness and funding for preservation programs for historic sites on military bases. For the Guam Preservation Trust itself, he says some of the goals is to accelerate the restoration work for historic districts in Inarajan and Hagatna, complete the registration for the Manenggon Concentration Camp to the National Register and develop a preservation curriculum for secondary and post-secondary schools.
