Guam – Airport Board Chairman Michael Ysrael says that 3 trips planned by 3 fellow Board members that he questioned as being unnecessary and wasteful, have been cancelled.

In an email to PNC News, Ysrael says that  he has received word the Airport Board Secretary “that the three trips, two to Manila and one to San Diego, have been rescinded by the Board members involved.”

On Thursday, Ysreal told PNC News that Board Member Francisco Santos had intended to go to an airport conference in San Diego, and Board Members Linda Tolan and Jess Torres were to attend a Financial Conference in Manila.

Ysrael told us that he had been to the Financial Conference for seperate business reasons in the past and  “it has nothing to do with Airport Operations. I voiced strong opposition.”  The trips were approved anyway at last Monday’s GIAA Board meeting, over Ysarel’s objections.

In reaction to the news that they have now been cancelled, , Ysrael said “I am extremely pleased to say that the People of Guam and the Governor have spoken loud and clear. The GIAA Board has received the message. The GIAA Board will be more careful in the future to ensure that Airport revenues are spent wisely and that unnecessary waste will not be tolerated.”

Dear Kevin,

 

Following up on Airport Board’s travel requests, I have received word from the Board Secretary that the three trips (two to Manila and one to San Diego) have been rescinded by the Board members involved.

 

I am extremely pleased to say that the People of Guam and the Governor have spoken loud and clear. The GIAA Board has received the message. The GIAA Board will be more careful in the future to ensure that Airport revenues are spent wisely and that unnecessary waste will not be tolerated.

 

Thank you and your organization for bringing this matter to the People, and for the quick and decisive instructions from the People on how they expect their Airport to be operated.
