*Letter to President Obama from sens. Respicio & Guthertz
Guam - Senators Judith Guthertz and Rory Respicio sent a letter to President Barack Obama today, asking that he make time in his busy schedule to meet a few of his fellow Americans who live outside the military gates. The senators ask the president that he use his leadership to help guide the military buildup properly.
They also write that Guam has yet to receive any of the promised assistance that is meant to cushion the impact of the buildup. In closing they state that a town hall meeting could help everyone gain a better understanding of the issues adding, "Please don't ignore us, Mr. President, you are Guam's best hope for a truly beneficial buildup."
