It is with great honor that I am given the opportunity to serve the people of Guam as the Interim Executive Manager of the Guam Regional Transit Authority (GRTA). In this capacity, I bring with me at least a couple of core values. As a local Guamanian, it was instilled in me during my upbringing that the bonding of family and the desire to pass a legacy of service with faith, hope, and commitment to all are vitally important. Secondly, experiencing hardship and life-long challenges contributed significantly in having the fortitude and strength to pursue safe, dependable, and efficient transit system for the people of Guam.
Therefore, it is with tremendous passion that the GRTA staff and I can look to the future with pride and say, “Ni hi Ta’ fan Hanao!”
We look forward to serving you with your transportation needs in the road ahead.
