Dr. Robert Underwood, who is running for Guam’s congressional delegate seat, issued the following statement in reaction to Joe Biden’s winning the US presidential election:
“Congratulations to President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris. This is a great victory for a new direction for our nation that will bring enormous opportunities for all Americans and especially for us in Guam.
“We have the potential to develop a Guam-specific agenda that will bring economic relief and security to your family, affordable health care to all, and increase educational opportunities. We have the opportunity to address long-standing issues between Guam and the federal government in a new political environment.
“In Guam, we have the opportunity to elect a Delegate who can help us take advantage of these opportunities and fulfill our potential. Our future in Washington DC is in our hands and the moment is at hand over the course of the next few days until November 17.
“We need someone who has worked with national leadership in the past and can do so easily in the future. We need a steady hand, a trusted voice, and someone who will protect you and your family every single day.
“Biba Biden-Harris! Biba Taotao Guam!”
