Guam’s first elected attorney general – Doug Moylan – is asking for your vote to elect him back to that office so he can restore law and order to the island.
“Criminals should be afraid at night, not you,” Mr. Moylan said in a news release issued after filing his candidacy papers at the Guam Election Commission. “That will return under an AG Moylan administration.”
Violent crime has been on the rise since Attorney General Leevin Camacho, who is running for reelection, took office. Highly placed sources have confirmed an exodus of prosecutors was caused by Mr. Camacho’s mismanagement and unethical interference on behalf of his friends and associates. That exodus of prosecutors has led to a backlog of criminal cases, and a higher number of plea agreements for violent criminals. Several criminal defendants, whom police arrest, have been released only to commit violent crimes again.
“We need Change in the AG’s Office to restore law & order,” Mr. Moylan said. “Like it or not, we all want and need the toughest AG to protect & to fight for all of us. We need an AG not afraid to prosecute, convince juries to convict and ask the Courts to severely punish criminals, including corrupt politicians.”
Mr. Moylan will be appearing on Kandit’s live candidate profile show, To The Point at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, June 29.
Mr. Moylan’s entire statement follows:
“Toughest AG On Crime”
I don’t want your money and will not be taking any donations, I just ask for your vote.
We need Change in the AG’s Office to restore law & order. Like it or not, we all want and need the toughest AG to protect & to fight for all of us. We need an AG not afraid to prosecute, convince juries to convict and ask the Courts to severely punish criminals, including corrupt politicians.
This AG has failed to (i) stop out of control violence, theft and drug problems; (ii) protect residents and businesses during the pandemic by allowing the Gov. to trample over our civil rights and ability to run our businesses, even ordering our National Guard troops to stop us while driving; and (iii) according to Guam’s Public Auditor, keep govt. officials from enriching the Gov’s. family by awarding a contract to a hotel holding a mortgage with Bank of Guam. The AG has even failed just recently to quickly act to protect an 83 year old Filipina Manåmko pleading for his help to protect her from physical abuse by her caregiver. For the Manåmko, Justice delayed is justice denied.
Tough on Crime, corruption prosecutions and standing up to controversial issues are non-existent with this AG. I have an undisputed record of being a tough AG that fought for everyone. There’s No “Strings” Attached to me.
If elected, my 30 years of experience, toughness and commitment to enforcing all laws for everyone returns to the AG’s Office’s criminal, civil, child support, and consumer protection divisions. We shall also restore strength to the AG’s Office so attorneys, employees and the public will again respect our chief legal officer.
We will also provide legal services to all government officials that result in a direct benefit to the taxpayer, consumer and resident to increase money in your pockets, not ours.
Fighting to put & keep criminals in jail, reduce gas prices, improve your quality of life, ensure corrupt officials get their just punishment, and to protect everyone’s civil rights are just a few things that will be different. When you elect an AG, you want the toughest fighter with experience as an AG, not an AG trying to appease everyone, including the criminals.
When you hire a lawyer, you don’t pay for a “nice guy,” like this AG. You pay for the toughest, smartest and most experienced attorney to fight for you. Don’t vote for an AG who wants to get re-elected. Vote for an AG who will fight till his last day in office, like I did.
Criminals should be afraid at night, not you. That will return under an AG Moylan administration.
