Posted: Updated:

As Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero delivers her first state of the island address, what should we expect?


"I think it's gonna be a you know, a realistic state of the island address," she told KUAM News. "Of course, there are many challenges, and the first 100 days was a great challenge for me.

•The Port Authority provided a signed Union Contract

•Bring closure to the ongoing cases involving employee appeals

•Determine staffing needs and realignment and reassignment of personnel
The remaining items on the "to do" list in the first 100 days dealt mainly with public safety agencies

•For the Guam Police Department it recommended stationing two police officers at village mayors offices during normal working hours, however during our weekly Crime Time facebook live show, the department has repeatedly stated it is short on manpower

•Guam Fire: it was recommended that within 100 days, the shifts of Emergency Medical Technicians be modified to fit 8-hour schedules to immediately alleviate the pressures on GFD's budget. The current EMT shifts accounts for nearly 80% of GFD operations.
