Commission on Decolonization stresses need for continuity

Posted: Updated:

The Commission on Decolonization is another government entity preparing for the transition to a new administration. The incoming governor will be able to select new appointees, but the representatives for the three political status options: statehood, independence and free association will remain.

They sought to ensure continuity for a planned decolonization conference next year and voted for Dr. Michael Bevacqua to chair the committee that's preparing for it.

Commission member Adrian Cruz told KUAM News, "I think the worry especially for those of us that are going to stay on is that if we have a totally different team and it takes on another direction it might defeat the whole purpose of what we're trying to achieve. So as long as one permanent member of the task force stays on."

"I think that's a lot better than just making it an interim, which has the potential to change things drastically. "

The current Commission on Decolonization will meet for the final time on Jan. 2.
