Guam - The Draft Environmental Impact Statement continues to draw in the crowds. During Tuesday night's village workshop in Yigo, hosted by the Governor's Office, several residents showed up to share their concerns about the proposed buildup of troops.
One such resident proclaimed, "I can't emphasize enough governor, if at all possible if the Prime Minister of Japan is needing until may to reexamine the relocation of the Marines from Okinawa to Guam, then I think perhaps that you could write a letter sir asking for a similar extensions. Furthermore, sir, a concern template for what could potentially happen to the island of Guam that we all love is the unfortunate situation that's happening in Okinawa, not only the people, but to the environment - to the land."
The governor's hired consultant, the Matrix Design Group, is leading the workshops aimed at providing information to the public about the DEIS. Another workshop is scheduled to be held this evening at the Mangilao Senior Citizens Center. It wraps up at 8:30pm.
