FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 6, 2014
Hagatna, Guam. Senator Tommy Morrison filed his bid for re-election with the Guam Election Commission this afternoon at 3pm with his wife Stephanie and children Gage and Jewel.
“The past year-and-a-half in elected office have been a privilege and I’m pleased with the accomplishments of my office. We have fulfilled our commitment to the youth as well as our commitment to improve government customer service using technology,” Morrison said.
In 2012, Senator Tommy Morrison committed to a platform dedicated to the youth as well as improving customer service through e-government initiatives. “Working with Senator Chris Duenas, my office worked on landmark legislation that has created approximately $1.5 million per year in funding for our village and school sports facilities,” Morrison said.
Senator Morrison also worked with the Vice-Speaker in authoring legislation that created the Office of Technology and the position of Chief Technology Officer. “This office is responsible for coordinating e-government initiatives throughout the Government of Guam, and bring more services online for our community,” Morrison said. The Vice-Speaker has called this legislation the most significant legislation passed by the 32nd Guam Legislature.
In an effort to place a greater importance and focus on Guam’s history and Chamorro heritage, Morrison authored public law that sets aside “Guam History and Chamorro Heritage Day.”
“If I am given the privilege of a second term, I want to ensure that the laws I have worked on are fully executed, and I want to continue my focus on youth, e-government, and heritage.”
