Guam – Attorney General Elizabeth Barret-Anderson has announced that she will not be seeking re-election and already one attorney, Leevin Camacho, has stepped up to the plate.

Camacho is the first to announce his candidacy for the Attorney General position. So far he runs uncontested, but that does not mean that he is taking this opportunity lightly.

Although Camacho has never worked at the AG’s office, he believes his 12 years of general practice in litigation’s qualifies him for the job. Camacho told PNC some issues that have compelled him to run for Attorney General of Guam.

“So, you have challenges to things like the Chamorro Land Trust and you also have in the recent news, the execution of that law. And again, the Attorney General plays a huge role in making sure that all government agencies, including the Chamorro Land Trust Commission follow the law. So, really what I can bring is willingness and passion to do what is right for the people of Guam and the whole training you need to be an Attorney General,” said Camacho.
