For the GFT 2020 At Large Election, there are two candidates vying for Treasurer: Lisa Mosher and Mary Jean Vigilante. Below are their statements of candidacy.
Hafa Adai! My name is Lisa M. Mosher. I have been employed with GDOE for multiple teaching, grant writing, day school, night school, summer school (social studies/science/exploring technology) and coaching since 12/05/90 at both GWHS/SSHS/GWHS. I came here to Guam on my own/not an off-island hire – after decades of studying the island, its history and cultures. I have been a union member since October 31, 1992. Over the years, I have greatly appreciated the strength that unions and various employees can do together to advocate for and ensure fair and happy workplaces.
I am running for the office of the GFT Treasurer because I would like to take the baton from Mr. James Lujan and carry on continued strength in the office of GFT Treasurer. I have had the pleasure of working with him and getting to know him and his family. I have much respect and admiration for all he’s done working with this organization and hope to continue that legacy.
Mary Jean Vigilante
