Guam businesses form Political Action Committee

This is a coalition of businesses and professional organizations who want to help guide the island through the current crisis and they are not convinced that the current government is the right answer.

New Political Action Committee Action PAC, Inc.
Announces Platform and Plans to Vet 2020 Candidates
Seven local organizations rally together to influence election
(Sept. 3, 2020 – Guam) – Action PAC, Inc., Guam’s newest political action committee established by
concerned constituents, nonprofit organizations, and business entities, launched its platform on
Sept. 2 through a virtual press conference that welcomed members of partner organizations, the
local media, candidates, and the community.
The group spoke in detail about its platform which focuses on five key initiatives:

  • Decrease the size (rightsizing) of the Government of Guam;
  • Improve transparency in all levels of the Government of Guam;
  • Support for the military build-up in Guam;
  • Support for a part-time legislature; and
  • Rollback of the BPT from 5% to 4% immediately
    Action PAC, Inc. Executive Director Laura Dacanay announced, “As the 2020 General Election is
    fast approaching, we will be reaching out to the senatorial candidates to learn more about the issues
    they support and identify those whose platforms – and not political affiliations or loyalties – align with
    our positions. We will begin our educational campaign thereafter to advise our members and the
    community on who we will be endorsing this election.”
    Action PAC is a nonprofit, political action committee (PAC) that was formed to affect change in
    government, beginning with the 2020 General Election. Plans for the PAC have been in the works for
    more than a year, and the group is committed to a long-term approach to improving Guam’s future.
    Christine Baleto, Chairwoman of Action PAC’s Board of Directors stated, “There is an urgent need to
    transform how the Government of Guam works for the people of Guam. We all want a better quality
    of life on our island, and that begins with rebuilding our economy. It will take some time, and it starts
    with strengthening local businesses and keeping our people employed. This isn’t just about
    business. It’s about our residents having the ability to take care of their families.”
    Action PAC does not identify with a specific political party and welcomes dialogue with leaders who
    place the best interest of the people above the red tape.
    George Chiu, Vice Chairman of the Board of Action PAC noted, “We need people in office who can
    affect change in our local government. This isn’t an ‘us versus them’ approach. This is about all of us
    working collaboratively with our elected leaders for a more accountable, transparent, rightsized
    government. The outcome of the 2020 election has to ultimately benefit and be right for all
    Guamanians.”

    dialogue with its constituents, especially when shaping the local economy. We are an inclusive group
    that believes in a respectful, professional, methodical approach to vetting candidates. Make no
    mistake, we are driven to affect change through our strength in numbers as a voting group that
