Guam -"We Are Guahan" has announced that they have sent out a survey to all the candidates running for office this year seeking their views on the military buildup.
The survey asks 5 yes or no questions ranging from the proposed acquisition of GovGuam and privately-owned property, to the proposed dredging of a reef in Apra Harbor and the funding for civilian infrastructure.
All the questions require a “Yes” or “No” answer. The "We Are Guahan" release states that "all other answers received will be considered non responsive."
"We Are Guåhan" member Cara Flores-Mays is quoted in a release as saying that "the goal of this survey is to provide voters with information to help them make an informed decision during the upcoming elections.”
The 5 Questions Are:
1. Do you support the Department of Defense getting more
2. Do you support the destruction of over seventy (70) acres of coral reef to accommodate a nuclear aircraft carrier?
3. Should the Department of Defense pay for impacts on our water system, wastewater system, roads, port, schools and hospital?
4. Do you believe most people on Guam will benefit economically from the buildup?
5. Do you support the military buildup?

We Are Guåhan Conducting Survey of Candidates about Military Buildup Issues
"We Are Guåhan" has sent a survey to all candidates running for office this year about issues related to the military buildup.
Specifically, the survey asks candidates to share their views on the Department of Defense expanding beyond its existing footprint, the planned destruction of reef at Apra Harbor, potential economic benefit, and funding for impacts on services that much of our community relies on, such as the hospital, public schools and roads.
“The decisions that our elected leaders make about the buildup will have long-term impacts on our environment, economy, culture and lands,” said We Are Guåhan member Cara Flores-Mays. “The goal of this survey is to provide voters with information to help them make an informed decision during the upcoming elections.”
