Information is power. In our democratic government in Chuuk, it is imperative that the people have the right information to make better decisions. With a growing of population of Chuukese citizens living abroad, it is now more than ever urgenly important for the State government to provide adequate medium for these citizens to access their government for information, services, questions, and program. We need an objective media to report on the news of the day, to question the decisions made by elected officials, and to provide an avenue for the public to share news. With municipalities scattered thousands of miles from the center of government on Weno, having a reliable means of disseminating weather information can mean life or death. Without an independently operated media in Chuuk, the people have no way of getting adequate coverage of events affecting their lives. The government should turn the operation, budget, and infrastructures of the ineffectively-run V6AK Radio Station to an independent reliable non-government organization to operate.
