SECURE FAMILIES ECONOMY ENVIRONMENT
DIRECT CHANGE FOR A BETTER GUAM
If our families, our economy, and our island environment are not secure, then Guam's future is insecure.
Judi will educate lawmakers on Guam’s needs and work tirelessly to support our Families, strengthen our Economy, and protect our Environment, to ensure sustainable growth for this generation and the next.
Investing in our economy requires investing in our children—in our soon to-be professionals—and our local businesses who will strengthen our workforce here at home. Our construction labor shortage is not just a housing issue; it is an economic issue, limiting Guam’s growth. The nursing shortage is more than just a healthcare issue, and adequate care creates more opportunities for local labor productivity. Guam also needs to ensure that it maximizes benefits from military contracts and activity.
Judi will work to:
Secure funds and resources to incentivize growth of local skilled laborers, nurses, and other critical industries through tuition-free training and internships
Remove the federal restrictions on H-2B labor for off-base work, regardless of the relationship to military projects and prioritize H-1B status for nurses coming to Guam
Re-establish a fully functioning Ship Repair Facility
Ensure that military contractors pay local taxes
Advance resources for the development of domestic and regional partnerships to expand our tourist and trade industry
Support the diversification of our tourist industry through eco-tourism and cultural tourism
Establish an Education Trust Fund for descendant of World War II victims
Expand student financial aid assistance and grant opportunities to incentivize the return of residents
Advocate for a regional representative from the SBA and USDA to support the availability of services and loans to small businesses
Support technological advancement for Guam and improved telecommunications and data capability
