Rep. Antonio Won Pat

Former Delegate for Guam’s At-Large District

Won Pat was the delegate from Guam and was a Democrat. He served from 1973 to 1984.

Because Guam is a territory of the United States, and not a state, its representative in the House of Representatives is a delegate with limited voting privileges — Won Pat can vote in committee but not on the House floor, including not on the final passage of bills. Delegates have a marginalized role in Congress and their constituents are not represented in Congress in the same manner as most citizens.
