GUAM - There are more changes at the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse.  Even as a federal management team appointed by District Court Judge Consuelo Marshall is getting situated at the DMHSA offices in Tamuning and they are preparing a plan of action to submit to the court later this month.  KUAM has confirmed that Elisabeth Cruz, who has been the acting director since the former director, David Shimizu resigned, has been sent  back to Adelup where she was previously working.  Deputy DMHSA Director Jason Tedtaotao is also no longer working at the agency as he has been tapped to be the director of the Guam Buildup Office.  Former GMH Associate Administrator and former DOE Chief Financial Officer Wilfred Aflague is now the acting director at Mental Health.  The administration has not given any reasons for the change in leadership at the agency that has had a revolving door of directors in the last few years in the midst of a permanent injunction to provide adequate and basic care to individuals with disabilities.
