    Editor,

    Talofa Fotu, with all due respect, our Tongan language takes too long and allows too many avenues to tangent. Please allow me to respond.

    Based on my experience as a graduate Student Of International Affairs and Global Politics, and over 20 years of working for the US Government and now working for the American Samoa Government as a special advisory to the governor on petroleum. I will use my experience to elaborate on the issues being discussed.

    1. Pay Raise, like all other expenses, is budget driven.
