The following is a news release from the Office of Congressman Michael San Nicolas:
Overnight a high level Congressional Delegation including Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Veteran Affairs Chairman Mark Takano, Foreign Affairs Chairman Gregory Meeks, Ways and Means Vice Chair Suzan DelBene and Members Andy Kim and Raj Krishnamoorthi visited Guam and joined Congressman MIchael San Nicolas for key briefings.
“We were so pleased our friends made time to visit Guam and find out about key issues we need to maintain attention on,” said Congressman San Nicolas. “We engaged in highly classified discussions critical to Guam’s safety and the well being of our community, and shared detail of our need for inclusion into national programs,” Congressman San Nicolas continued.
“We presented all members with leis as is our tradition, and a model proa for the Speaker as a reminder of our indigenous ingenuity, all of which were gratefully received,” Congressman San Nicolas added. “Out of respect for National Security and the safe travels of our friends we maintained the necessary confidentiality of this visit until everyone arrived safely at their next destination, and we are again so grateful they made time to show respect to our island and people of Guam,” Congressman San Nicolas concludes.
