Brooks looks ahead to November

GDP: …Republican former Public Auditor Doris Flores Brooks will now compete with Democrat Sen. Michael San Nicolas for Guam's lone seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Brooks ran unopposed as a Republican in the primary election Saturday. San Nicolas will represent the Democratic Party in the general election, after beating incumbent Del. Madeleine Bordallo in the primary.

Brooks became Guam's first elected public auditor and held the role for nearly 18 years.

Speaker Benjamin Cruz will now replace Brooks after his wide margin win in the three-way race for public auditor….

"The primary is behind us and it's time to move on to the general election, but before doing so, I thank every person who encouraged me and voted for me to be the Republican nominee for Guam's delegate to Congress. I am particularly grateful to the friends and family who gave their own time and resources to aid me in my run for Congress," Brooks said.

"The visits to all the camps at all the precincts were particularly exhilarating," she added. "Those who are at the camps for every candidate are there not for personal reward but because they believe in a person and a cause. I felt welcomed wherever I went. The people of Guam are good hearted. Thank you for your many courtesies."

Brooks said in the general election, "I will articulate my beliefs and goals, and set out for you why I believe I can best represent Guam in Washington."....

Amata Thanks Congresswoman Bordallo for Effective Public Service

News Release fom Office of Rep Aumua Amata, R-AS, August 28, 2018

Washington, DC – Tuesday, Congresswoman Aumua Amata released the following statement thanking Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo of Guam for her lengthy and effective public service:

“It has been a privilege working with Congresswoman Bordallo many times on shared bipartisan priorities for the Pacific region or our islands’ Veterans over the past four years. Many years before we worked together in Congress, our fathers worked together in Saipan for the U.S. administration of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, and we’ve both been blessed to follow in their tradition. I appreciate and value the friendship she displayed for American Samoa throughout her 16 years of decisive influence in the U.S. Congress.”

“Congresswoman Bordallo has served Guam in some public capacity almost continuously since 1975. She has compiled a remarkable track record as a legislator, and is known in Congress as a leader and an effective, committed lawmaker. Since 2002, she has served in the United States Congress, and due to her seniority, is the Dean of the Members from the five island Territories. She is a highly influential Member of the Armed Services Committee and the Natural Resources Committee, and both Committees are integral to Guam and the Territories. She serves as the Vice Chair of the Asian Pacific American Caucus. In these roles and more, Congresswoman Bordallo is a longstanding and persuasive public voice for the Pacific Islands, and for issues about which she cares deeply, such as priorities for women or environmental needs. Thank you, Congresswoman Bordallo, for your distinguished service.”
