(Adelup)--Governor Felix P. Camacho left Guam yesterday to meet with the Federal Regional Council in San Francisco. While in California, Camacho will also attend the Western Governors’ Association Winter meeting in San Diego.
The regional council’s agenda is expected to include a presentation by the Naval Facilities Engineering Command on the Socioeconomic Impact Assessment Study for Guam. The council is also expected to meet with the governor and his Advisory Consulting Team to discuss issues related to Guam’s preparation efforts for the buildup.
The federal council membership includes regional representatives from the following federal departments and agencies: Agriculture, Education, Energy, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Justice, Labor, Interior, Transportation, EPA, and the Social Security Administration.
Following the council meeting on Dec.15, Camacho will attend the governors’ meeting the next day in San Diego, where he will share with members his perspective on climate concerns.
“A lot of what concerns us as island leaders in this region was brought to light during the Micronesian Chief Executives’ Summit,” said Camacho. “This is obviously an issue that affects all of us, and I will take advantage of this opportunity to share our view and secure any assistance that may be available to address our concerns.”
