The Guam Japan Friendship Village has reached out to the village mayors to hold town meetings on the For-Profit Bingo Initiative, or Prop A.
At previous forums and discussions regarding Prop A, only the proponents’ legal counsel represented the company.
Ordot-Chalan Pago Mayor Jessy Gogue has been tasked to organize meetings in various villages on behalf of interested mayors of the Mayors’ Council of Guam and will be in contact with the group. The first meeting has already been scheduled for today at the Yigo Gym at 6:30 p.m.
“The way we see it is this is your initiative. Pick a time and a date and show up. If you don’t, shame on you,” said Mayor Gogue. The pamphlet on the initiative issued by the Guam Election Commission will be available at the meetings, the mayor added.
Future village meetings on the measure will be announced as they are confirmed and organized with village mayors.
Prop A will be on the ballot at the general election on Tuesday, Nov. 6. The initiative aims to allow for-profit bingo gaming in the Guam Greyhound building in Tamuning.
“Keep Guam Good,” an organization opposed to the initiative, has already confirmed their presence at the first meeting.
