After dedicating 25 years to the Guam public school system, Judi became an advocate for changes in education standards and was elected a Member of the Guam Legislature in 1994. She served as the Chairperson of the Committee of Education and Higher Education for numerous terms during her 18 years in office.
Judi was selected as Guam’s first woman Speaker of the Guam Legislature, an office she held for 5 of her 9 terms as Senator. Known to work across party lines to generate support, she oversaw authorization for the construction of public schools using innovative financing options, the establishment of charter schools, assistance to local cattle ranchers, and financial assistance for first-time homeowners.
Judi has developed strong local and regional relationships with leaders in various industries and continues to advocate for opportunities that contribute to the island’s sustainable growth.
Judi is reminded of the struggles of families today who are hurting and in need of support more than ever. With the well-being of our families as the foundation of her agenda, Judi looks to expand economic opportunities and protect our environment for sustainable growth for Guam.
