After humble beginnings in the private sector with Pacific Financial Corporation and IBM Corporation, in 1988, Guam Governor Joseph Ada appointed him deputy director of the Public Utility Agency of Guam. Eight months later, Camacho was appointed to the Civil Service Commission and later selected by the Board to serve as its Executive Director. In 1992, Camacho was elected senator in the Twenty-Second Guam Legislature, subsequently winning seats in the Twenty-Third, Twenty-Fourth, and Twenty-Sixth legislatures. In 2000, he was named the legislature’s Majority Whip and Chairman of the Committee on Tourism, Transportation, and Economic Development.

Camacho was elected Guam’s sixth governor in 2002 and re-elected in 2006.  His first term in office was marked by disaster recovery, revitalization of Guam’s economy, and stabilizing the Government of Guam’s fiscal position.  Governor Camacho’s focus in his second term established a strategy for long-term and sustainable growth to build new schools and critical infrastructure and build careers for the citizens of Guam.

Recently, Governor Camacho headed up Business Development activities for CAM5 Properties and has led the activities of Rhema Consulting, a full service consultancy in the Western Pacific that worked on business development and public policy issues for corporations in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Republic of the Phillippines, Republic of Korea, Vietnam and Taiwan. As a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, he will work to advance common-sense conservative policies designed to encourage economic growth and job creation in Guam and the other U.S. Territories, restore accountability and transparency in the federal government and ensure that the tax dollars that come from Washington DC are spent more wisely, efficiently and effectively.
