Guam - The Republican Party of Guam unveiled its platform yesterday evening before a group of Republican candidates along with dozens of supporters including the island's mayors and some past executive leaders, including former governors Joseph Ada and Paul Calvo and former Lt. Governor Frank Blas.

Party chairman Mike Benito said, "So now we have another four years and of course we have a very stable government, but what we need to do now is generate more revenues for the island of Guam and a lot of legislative policy that you're going to see tonight that will happen if we have a Republican majority will bring those additional revenues to again improve our island and make it a better place,"

The GOP platform outlines commitments for the Guam buildup, economy and jobs, fiscal responsibility, education, public safety, veterans issues and government efficiency.
