Guam Education Board settles on swear-in date


Guam Education Board’s next meeting will welcome two new members Mark Mendiola and Ron McNinch. 

Guam – PNC covered the Guam Education Board’s perceived miscommunication for the official swear-in date of their two new board members and it looks like they’ve reached an agreement on their return in the New Year.

GEB member Peter Alecxis Ada told PNC this morning that the date has finally been settled.

Tuesday, January 3rd is when the board will reconvene and swear-in two newly appointed board members Mark Mendiola and Ron McNinch.

According to Ada, the board is still securing a chief justice to officiate the two new members.

While the swear-in is simply a formality, it was cause for contention when board members initially disagreed upon whether the meeting should take place on the first Tuesday or the following Monday.

Ada has stated that the decision was ultimately up to Chairwoman Lou San Nicolas who is currently off-island until the morning of the official swear-in.

Mark Mendiola has been tapped to represent the parent community while Ron McNinch will represent the business community.

Both have been appointed by Governor Eddie Calvo.
