Chirag M. Bhojwani will continue serving as the Democratic Party of Guam's executive director, party chairman Anthony M. Babauta announced today.
“Chirag has worked to advance Democratic values in our community and advocate for policies that reflect diversity, inclusion and justice,” Babauta said, announcing Bhojwani's reappointment. “His youthful energy, experience, and professionalism continue to be an asset for our party and our community.”
Former party chair Sarah Thomas-Nededog first appointed Bhojwani as executive director in September 2020. He executed over a dozen virtual town halls leading up to the 2020 election.
During his tenure, Bhojwani also worked with the Association of State Democratic Committees to build a closer partnership with the National Democratic Party.
Prior to going off to college, Bhojwani was a director of the Young Democrats of Guam and founding member of the Public Policy Institute.
Bhojwani is a graduate of the Catholic University of America – majoring in Politics and Philosophy; he also has a public-policy background on local and federal levels.
Bhojwani also ran a successful multi-million dollar small business in Washington, D.C. and was a former member of the Silver Spring Fire Department in Montgomery County, Maryland. He has worked for two former Democratic Party speakers of the Guam Legislature.
“As I stated last year when I took on this role, the Democratic Party is the party of the people. I grew up here and am grateful for the opportunity to make our island a better place for everyone who calls Guam home," Bhojwani said.
