The Guam Chamber of Commerce and the Guam Federation of Teachers have submitted letters of support for recommendations to various positions within the Biden-Harris Administration put forward by Congressman Michael San Nicolas.
“As we build further support in the effort to advance meaningful recommendations to serve in the Biden-Harris Administration we are humbled to receive endorsements from both the Guam Chamber of Commerce and the Guam Federation of Teachers,” San Nicolas said in a news release.
He added: “As the largest business and labor organizations on Guam the support of these two institutions illustrates the rare appeal of these recommended nominees to both private sector interests and labor union advocacy, an uncommon outcome that underscores the focus of unity that the Biden-Harris Administration seeks and these candidates posses.”
According to San Nicolas, TEAM GUAM USA is not just a political catch phrase but a higher calling to elevate our island, our people, and our Nation, and is so answered in the united support of our island’s largest private sector and labor union organizations for these highly qualified individuals.
The recommended nominees endorsed by the Guam Chamber of Commerce and The Guam Federation of Teachers are as follows:
= Brigadier General (Ret.) Roderick Leon Guerrero to Deputy Secretary of Veterans Affairs
= Dr. Doreen T. Crisostomo, BBAA, MBAA, Ph.D to Deputy Director of U.S. Office of Management and Budget
= Ms. Jennifer Romero to Assistant Secretary of the Interior
= Ms. Shelly Vargas Calvo to U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of the Philippines

= The Honorable James V. Espaldon to the U.S. Ambassador to the Federated States of Micronesia
= Ms. Michelle Kramer to the U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of the Marshall Islands
“We thank the Guam Chamber of Commerce and the Guam Federation of Teachers for their example and support, and our recommended nominees for their willingness to serve,” San Nicolas said.
