HAGATNA, Guam (Pacific Daily News, Jan. 5) - Guam Delegate Madeleine Bordallo was sworn in yesterday for her second term in office, along with other members of Congress in the House chamber.

Bordallo ran unopposed during last year's elections and was elected to another two-year term.

Attorney Jay Arriola was Bordallo's guest in the House gallery, according to her office, because he helped build support on Guam for Bordallo's bill to create a unified and independent judiciary.

"I am honored to be given the opportunity to again represent the people of Guam in Congress. There will be significant challenges for Guam in the 109th Congress, chief among them continuing to address Guam war claims," Bordallo is quoted as saying in a press release from her office.

"Reducing health-care disparities, attracting additional military investment, stimulating the economy and creating jobs will also be some of my priorities over the next two years. I am committed to continue working with Guam's leaders to make our case in Washington."

Bordallo's office noted that the congresswoman during her freshman term used a bipartisan approach to bring Guam's leaders together to address the island's issues in the nation's capital.
