Governor of Guam, Lou Leon Guerrero speaks to Patti about $661 million in federal funds, emphasizing that her administration has been planning for the task of distributing funds throughout the community, adding “…the first priority is replace lost revenues.” The conversation with Governor Leon Guerrero follows another with Senator Jim Moylan who she was not transparent enough in terms of the distribution of $661 million in federal funds, nor did Moylan feel there was sufficient clarification on the priorities the money will be made to assist. In response, Governor Leon Guerrero says, “I’m disappointed that he says ‘There’s no transparency’… I did say in the State of the Island Address that the priorities of this is lost revenues…to get people jobs…to [put] the money into the hands of the people… I said all of that in the State of the Island Address!”
