A couple weeks ago I mentioned some ways that GovGuam could cut costs. I suggested trimming non-essential agencies like CAHA and the library. Seems somebody was listening – here’s a quote pulled from the front page of today’s PDN:
“Our concerns are going to deaf ears. What is the government’s priority? I cannot see the existence of Mass Transit, CAHA, Parks and Rec over DOE… The Legislature and administration have to look at the resources of this island. This department is dying.” – Jose Nededog, Education Policy Board Member
Nededog’s comments concerned the Department of Education, which is in dire straits and cannot meet its payroll tomorrow. DOE owes millions to vendors and utilities, and more millions to the Department of Revenue and Taxation. The entire educational system is teetering and ready to collapse.
