Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Installations and Environment Dr. Dorothy Robyn met with lawmakers late yesterday afternoon. Speaker Judi Won Pat says Robyn has said she will work closely with the Government of Guam and the military to see what could be done to address issues that may come up.
Won Pat says she was glad Robyn had the opportunity to tour outside the bases. "This is the one official that has actually had time to not just have time to go around and look at the base to only look at the military site for expansion but more importantly, she went to go into the local community to see what the impact would be."
Dr. Robyn toured the Guam Memorial Hospital, the University of Guam, and the Guam Community College. She was briefed on the roles these institutions will play when it comes to workforce training capabilities and the capacity of the hospital to provide services to the people of Guam.
