Underwood says he can't endorse candidates

by Sabrina Salas Matanane from

Guam - University of Guam president Dr. Robert Underwood wants to clear the record. While his speech given during former president Bill Clinton's visit to Guam 12 years ago has been used in political advertisements, he says he cannot and does not endorse any candidate for governor or senator.

In a statement issued today, Dr. Underwood said, "The recent unauthorized use of my voice and words in a political television advertisement and e-mail letter taken from an event held 12 years not appropriate." He has asked the Democratic gubernatorial of Carl Gutierrez/Frank Aguon to remove his voice and words from their commercials.

As part of his contract with the university and as a Government of Guam employee, Underwood is unable to participate in political activities.
