There’s a changing of the guard on the Republican side of the 36th Guam Legislature.

Republican senator James Moylan has just announced that he is no longer the Minority Leader of the 36th Guam Legislature.

Moylan, in his statement, hinted that there was discord within the Republican caucus in the 36th Guam Legislature.

“While I believe that the reasons which lead to the decision were unwarranted, I respect the will of the majority within the caucus,” Moylan said.

He added: “I serve the people of Guam, and I will continue to serve with honor as I did in the previous legislature, and as I have since I took the oath of office on January 4, 2021. We have many serious issues to focus on, and these latest developments will in no manner, hinder our efforts. Let’s Get Guam Moving.”

According to PNC sources, Sen. Chris Duenas will be taking over as Minority Leader
