WASHINGTON – Congressman James Moylan (R-Guam) is the first Republican to represent Guam in Congress in 30 years, but he hasn’t wasted any time making an impact.

While Moylan’s transition to Capitol Hill has come with challenges – his home and constituents are over 7,000 miles away – the lawmaker secured a spot on multiple House committees and quickly earned the support of some prominent Republicans. Because he is a non-voting member, Moylan says developing relationships with other members of his caucus is crucial to ensure his constituents are well-represented.
