In a letter to Speaker Judi Won Pat, Brooks points out that even though she is running uncontested for re-election, current election law requires that the Guam Election Commission print and tabulate a separate ballot for Public Auditor.
"That means the Commission will have to print approximately 50,000 ballots for the uncontested office of Public Auditor and count those that are cast! Ms. Pangelinan conservatively estimates that each ballot will cost about one dollar, meaning approximately $50,000 in what appears to be an unnecessary cost."
"Because of the government's strained financial condition," writes Flores-Brooks "I urge that the Legislature immediately authorize the Election Commission to cancel the uncontested primary for Public Auditor."
She notes that the Legislature has until August 1st to act.
