Respicio maintains stance against Crisostomo

Guam - Although last week's oversight hearing with the Guam Environmental Protection Agency was held to clear the air involving several issues with the agency - including a federal report dinging the agency's administrator Lorilee Crisostomo for financial mismanagement, the Yigo fire, and as Committee Chair on Natural Resources Senator Rory Respicio put it a noticeable silence during the process for the Draft EIS for the military buildup - the Democrat lawmaker hasn't wavered on his position that Crisostomo needs to step down.

Respicio said, "Lieutenant Governor Mike Cruz is responsible for the Guam State Clearing House and I am writing him a letter and saying since he did a quick job to restore the leadership at the Guam Police, its incumbent of him to do the same at the Guam EPA. I mean this four-and-a-half hour hearing is going to be for naught, and all I want to do is put the information out there and let the public come up with their own conclusion."

During last week's hearing, Senator Respicio told Crisostomo that she has the most important job in the government adding that she seemed to have an excuse for everything.
