I am currently the Mayor for the District of Chalan Pago – Ordot , finishing up my second term as the Mayor of our Community. Prior to my public service, I spent more than 10 years in the private sector, working as a consultant and the owner/operator of various personal and family owned businesses. I also served as a Computer Systems Analyst Supervisor with the Government of Guam (93’– 98’), for five years, after returning home from my active duty service in the U.S. Marine Corps. During my time as an Analyst with the government, I supervised junior programmers as well as developed and enhanced existing software for the Department of Public Health and Social Services’ (DPHSS’) automated Public Welfare System.
February, 1993 – July, 1993: After leaving active duty as a Captain in the Marine Corps, I spent this period as a Reserve Officer and a “Major Select” who performed several reserve assignments before returning to Guam. One of his more notable assignments included sitting on the Marine Corps Reserve Officer Promotion Board in Washington, D.C. for the ranks of Chief Warrant Officer 2 – Captain. The assignment to serve on promotion boards is highly selective.
May, 1983 – January, 1993: After my Commission and upon graduation from the Marine Corps Officers’ Basic School, I was given the designation of Engineer Officer. As an Engineer Officer, my assignments included: Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia; Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, California; Marine Corps Base Camp Lejuene, North Carolina; Camp Foster, Okinawa, Japan; Marine Corps Air Station, Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii; and Navy and Marine Corps Reserve Training Center, Portland, Oregon. My personal awards include the Navy-Marine Corps Commendation Medal and the Navy-Marine Corps Achievement Medal with a gold star (second award), in addition to the National Defense Service Medal and the Meritorious Unit Commendation ribbon with two stars (second and third awards).
Throughout my youth and professional career, I have always recognized Chalan Pago-Ordot as my home. I attended the Ordot-Chalan Pago Elementary School, Agueda I. Johnston Junior High School (now a middle school) and graduated from George Washington Senior High in 1978. After high school, I enlisted in the United States Navy to attend the Naval Academy Preparatory School (NAPS) in Newport, Rhode Island (July, 1978 – June, 1979). Following NAPS I received a Secretary of the Navy appointment to the Naval Academy, graduating from the Academy with a B.S. in Applied Sciences (Computer Science).
Upon graduation from the Naval Academy, I was commissioned a Second Lieutenant, U.S. Marine Corps. Subsequently, I attended and graduated from the Engineering Officer’s Course in Camp Lejune, N.C. I also attended and graduated from the Marine Corps’ Amphibious Warfare School in May, 1990, a school designed to groom young Marine Captains for Command.
I am married to the former Elaine Shimizu Jesus of Asan and we have two children, Kimberly Michelle and David William, and a granddaughter, Kaitlyn Michelle. I am the son of Francisco San Nicolas and Primitiva (dec.) Cruz Gogue of Ordot."
