VIDEO: Governor Calvo Launches “My Village Project” THURSDAY in Yona


Guam – Governor Calvo is launching a new initiative called the “My Village Project.”

The “My Village Project” launch happens Thursday at 2pm in front of  the St. Francis Church in the village of Yona.

The Governor’s Deputy Press Secretary Phil Leon Guerrero explains that it’s a mufti-faceted program aimed at reinvigorating village pride on a grass roots level by bringing government services to the residents of each village. 

Leon Guerrero says the goal is to see what kinds of government services are needed at the village level and then bring those services to their doorsteps.  

“Really to let everyone on the island know village by village that this government is here to serve them. If it means that we are going to go to their door to make sure that people are getting the services that they need that’s the commitment from this administration we will be providing the services that you need and we will be doing everything we can to get you that service even if it means going to your doorstep,” said Leon Guerrero.

 Leon Guerrero says the Governor’s office will be partnering with agencies like GPD, GCC, Public Health, and other agencies during the “my village project” outreach program.

Governor Eddie Baza Calvo will launch a brand-new initiative tomorrow called the “My Village Project.”  Each month, the administration will shine the spotlight on a different village and direct much-needed help to where residents need it most.  Outreach events will be planned in partnership with each Mayor’s office to address the different needs every village has.  They can be as simple as a cleanup at a park, or as comprehensive as a week-long program that will bring government services directly to your door.

Yona, the gateway to the south, was chosen as the first village to participate in this campaign.

Village leaders, including Mayor Ken Joe Ada, will join Governor Calvo at tomorrow’s proclamation signing.  The “My Village Project” launch will begin at 2 p.m., in front of St. Francis Church.
