Could this be Act 3 of Tagawa at the Port?

Posted: Updated:

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - The third time could be a charm for Ken Tagawa. First, he resigned after seven months on the job as general manager of the Port Authority of Guam because of health reasons, only to come back under a $20,000 a month contract to be the agency's chief negotiator. That contract just expired.  And now, Tagawa is being considered for the deputy position. 

Port board chairperson Monte Mesa told KUAM News, "I don't see that there's a concern about how the people we're trying to bring in to help steer the Port in the right direction and modernizing the Port; we need all the help we can get, especially for professional people in the field who can guide us through this process."

Tagawa is up against Vivian Leon, who is holding the deputy port gm position in an acting capacity. Leon has been with the Port Authority for nearly three decades. The board meets on Thursday at 5pm.
