6:00pm At the end of the year, the legislature will lose six senators, Four Republicans and two Democrats.
The Pacific News Center caught up with some of the soon to be former lawmakers to discuss their future plans. Senator Larry Kasperbauer, who has served ten years in the legislature, said he plans on spending more time with his grandchildren and write a book. Kasperbauer said although he will be leaving this January, supporters should not count him out of the political world in the future.

Senator Robert Klitzkie who rarely misses a day at the legislature will also be leaving. Vice speaker Joanne Brown said she never imagined that she would be in the legislature for 12 years, but feels it's time for her to move on to new challenges. Democrat Senator BJ Cruz said he plans to get back into law.

The two other senators you won’t see in the 29th Guam Legislature are Republican Mike Cruz and Democrat Frank Aguon. Both lawmakers ran for Lt Governor during the general election. Cruz, who is also a private medical doctor and a colonel in the Guam Army National Guard, will serve as Lt. Governor. As for Aguon, he said pending the outcome of the general election run-off case in the Guam Supreme Court, he has plans to get back into the private sector.
