Guthertz seeks answers from USDOE
by Mindy Aguon
Guam - Military Buildup chairperson Senator Judi Guthertz wants some answers from the U.S. Department of Education. In a letter to Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary Winona Varnon, the Democrat lawmaker wants to know why the USDOE is attempting to reclaim 80 acres of land that was designated for the construction of a high school at the Marbo property.
Guthertz believes the feds want the land back to turn it over to the military to provide additional land for the firing range complex that's been planned for the area or to build additional Department of Defense schools on the property. The feds are trying to reclaim the property, saying GovGuam technically defaulted on the agreement to build a school because of a lack of funds for construction.
