Rodriguez "same old BS" of corruption of ruining GovGuam

Posted: May 17, 2018 4:02 PM Updated:

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Dennis Rodriguez speaking out today on what he calls the political corruption that is plaguing the local government. In a speech before the Rotary Club, Rodriguez says he is sick and tired of "the same old BS".

He stated, "It is rotting this island from the inside out. The political elite have had their way for so long that even they can't see how the money they've taken away from the poor and the middle class has truly divided Guam between those who get everything and everyone to take everything from. What separates me from my opponents is that I've never been a part of the elite establishment. I've never had affection for those who've used their power and money to rob from everyone else."

Rodriguez says he will put an end to political favoritism, and promises to provide full and unrestricted public scrutiny of government records. He added, "In my administration there will be no such thing as a government employee who cannot speak to a reporter, or a public document that doesn't exist online. Every public document, every bit of public information down to realtime access to every unrestricted checking and savings account of this government will be online, indexed and categorized."

Rodriguez also pledged to slash the size of his cabinet and reorganize the government to save costs.  He is the latest candidate to appear before the Rotary club.  Senator Frank Aguon, Jr. and Lt. Governor Ray Tenorio were the previous guests. 

Up next will be former Senator Lou Leon Guerrero, and former Governor Carl Gutierrez.
