Press Release: Nelson proposes putting GVB in charge of Liberation Day

February 1, 2019

Vice Speaker Telena C. Nelson introduced legislative Bill No. 33 on Friday to transfer the authority and oversight of the Guam Island Fair Committee from the Mayor’s Council of Guam to the Guam Visitors Bureau.

 

The bill would put GVB in charge of the upcoming 75th annual Liberation Day carnival, parade and other festivities.

 

“The Guam Visitors Bureau has had success promoting Guam as a world-class destination. Why not let them pour that same passion into our island’s most celebrated holiday?” said Vice Speaker Telena C. Nelson.

 

“I appreciate all the mayors have done to lay a foundation for the future of Liberation Day and its associated activities, but our mayors have many other municipal responsibilities that need their full attention year-round. Let’s have our tourism professionals put Guam’s stamp on our 75th Liberation Day,” she added.
