Bordallo Recognizes Joaquin Pangelinan Perez’s Years of Public Service
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – November 7, 2013 – Guam
Congresswoman Bordallo today issued the following statement on the retirement of Joaquin “Kin” Pangelinan Perez from his position as Senior Policy Advisor in the Congresswoman’s District Office after more than 40 years of public service.
In 1970, after returning from graduate studies in the U.S. mainland, Kin became a secondary school teacher with the Guam Department of Education and began his years of public service for our community. In 1972, Kin worked as the Chief of Administration for the Commercial Port of Guam. Later Congresswoman Bordallo’s husband, the late Governor Ricky Bordallo, appointed him in 1974 to be the General Manager of the Port Authority of Guam until 1978. Kin went on to serve in a number of appointed positions during Governor Bordallo’s administration as the General Manager of the Guam Raceway Park and General Manager of the Guam Power Authority. He also served as Chief of Staff for the Committee on Federal and Foreign Affairs for the 20th, 21st, 22nd, and 23rd Guam Legislatures and a Senior Legislative Analyst for the late Speaker Antonio R. Unpingco.
Congresswoman Bordallo presented Kin with an Extension of Remarks, published in the Congressional Record, in recognition of his years of public service and contributions to our island.
“Kin has been a close advisor and valuable employee throughout my public service career,” said Congresswoman Bordallo. “He was my Chief of Staff during my first term as Lieutenant Governor of Guam from 1995 to 1999. Most recently, Kin served as an integral member of my Guam District Office, where he has worked since my first term in U.S. House of Representatives in 2003. As my former District Director and Senior Policy Advisor, Kin has provided invaluable counsel to me, and, has helped many of my constituents resolve matters with the federal government.”
“I commend Kin on his retirement and I thank him for his years of public service to the people of Guam. I look forward to his continued contributions to our community.”
