Governor Lou Leon Guerrero is not, as of the draft of her speech Sunday morning, expected to address growing concerns of public and police corruption in her third state of the island address Monday night.
Kandit News will be covering the speech live. The governor is expected to name her priorities for the spending of an enormous $661 million gift from the federal government, secured by Congressman Michael San Nicolas. She also is expected to place the unprecedented pandemic response into perspective as she sets up a dialogue with the voters of Guam toward her reelection request next year.
But it is corruption, particularly police corruption, that has consumed the public conscience, especially with the Covid-19 crisis dwindling into memory.
The governor’s communications director, Krystal Paco-San Agustin, told Kandit this morning that, from her reading today of the latest draft, corruption issues are not addressed.
