Brother-as-consultant hiring questioned

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The federal management team selected to lead the compliance of the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse isn't commenting about the recent decision to hire Jim Casey's brother, Jack, to serve as a consultant.  But acting director of the agency Wilfred Aflague confirms that he learned about the hire and believes it was inappropriate.

He says while he wasn't privy to the details, Aflague says is an issue between Casey and Judge Consuelo Marshall.  "We know in the Government of Guam that that's a no-no and it may not be illegal but it certainly looks like improper; but I'll leave that question up to Mr. Casey," said Aflague.

KUAM attempted to contact Casey for comments, but calls were not returned as of news time.

In the meantime, Senator Judi Guthertz fired off a letter to Marshall, requesting for the judge to intervene and overrule the hiring action.
