(CALVO-TENORIO CAMPAIGN) -- Careers for our people was the topic of discussion among more than 500 people, who came to see to see gubernatoirla hopeful Sen. Eddie Calvo and his running mate Ray Tenorio at their latest meeting in Barrigada.
“You can count on us to be there and listen to your issues and concerns,” Calvo said. “Every time we speak directly with people, we hear about the struggles and frustrations families have. This drives us to help in any way we can.”
The conversation focused on the team’s vision for a successful and sustained economic future. Both men stress the coming military buildup is only a narrow part of the opportunity the island has to build a new, bright economy.
“Our people have shown their hard work and dedication time and time again, and that’s why they deserve the jobs of the future,” Calvo said.
“Our leaders have an opportunity to make that happen. If we seize this opportunity, we will not just have good times in the next few years, but Guam will have good times when your children are adults, and better times when your children’s children grow up.”
“There are a lot of people really struggling. We have neighbors that work two jobs just to put food on the table and keep a roof over our heads,” Tenorio said. “We want to give the best to our people – the best jobs, the best education, and the best healthcare, because that’s what you deserve, and that’s what you’ll get. This team is about the island we love and the future we want our children to be a part of.”
