This week, the Fanohge Coalition is holding two virtual candidate forums with the hopes of infusing into Guam’s 2020 campaign season a greater appreciation for issues of CHamoru Self-Determination and political status change.
The first forum is taking place Wednesday, August 5th at 10 am and will feature candidates seeking to represent the island as its single non-voting delegate.
The second will take place on Thursday, August 6th at 10 am and will feature five non-incumbent candidates seeking election into I Liheslaturan Guåhan.
Both forums will be streamed live on the Fanohge Coalition’s Facebook page. (https://www.facebook.com/fanohgecoalition).
For the Congressional Candidate Forum, both former Guam Congressman Robert Underwood and current Guam Senator Wil Castro have confirmed to participate. Current Guam Congressman Michael San Nicolas did not respond to multiple invitations to participate.
For the Non-Incumbent Senatorial forum, the following five candidates have confirmed their attendance: Fred Bordallo Jr., Joanne Salas Brown, Ken Leon Guerrero, Chris Carillo and Vince Borja. Invitation were sent to all non-incumbent candidates.
The Fanohge Coalition is comprised of 37 community organizations, and was recently formed in the hopes of promoting the issues of CHamoru self-determination and political status change in the 2020 Guam election.
