Governor Lou Leon Guerrero says the Biden-Harris win was the best present she could have wished for as she woke up celebrating her birthday yesterday.
On the air with Newstalk K57 this morning, the Governor opined on the presidential win, saying there’s renewed hope for America as a whole.
She said the priorities for Guam remain the same as she continues fighting for more federal support on crucial issues like raising the Medicaid cap, the self-determination issue, and the EITC tax situation.
Leon Guerrero says she’ll also pursue other priorities with the new administration.
“I’m looking at how we can get more from the military buildup, making sure that we get benefits and equally recognized with the military buildup. I’m looking at getting more excess land from the Navy so that we can build our hospital and I’m looking to see if we can get federal help in building our hospital. So there are a lot of things in health, education and of course our total welfare and wellbeing of our island,” the governor said.
The governor also said she’s ready to work with whoever wins the congressional delegate runoff race on the island, saying that role is critical for Guam to set its priorities in Washington.
She says all levels of government need to have a united voice into the White House and ultimately, that’s funneled through the Guam delegate.
