Respicio pushes Cruz to oust Crisostomo

by Nick Delgado

Guam - Chairman of the Legislative Committee on Natural Resources Senator Rory Respicio officially sent a letter to Acting Governor Mike Cruz requesting he remove Guam Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lorilee Crisostomo. The senator saying her leadership has the agency falling behind each day.

He added that there are alarm bells sounding in Guam and they are ringing because of the lack of leadership.  Senator Respicio stating Crisostomo during last weeks' oversight hearing was placing the blame everywhere but with herself. He is asking the acting governor to take action and to act decisively.

There's no comment yet from the Acting Governor as to whether he will do anything.

Crisostomo, on the other hand, says she is considering filing an ethics complaint against Senator Respicio. The administrator is claiming "unfairness and a personal interest that Respicio is showing" towards her."
