Respicio unphased by Crisostomo's threats

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - "Bring it." In a nutshell, that's basically Senator Rory Respicio's reaction to Guam EPA Administrator Lorilee Crisostomo's comments that she might file an ethics complaint (or possibly a harassment complaint) with the Guam Police Department against him.

Senator Respicio has been critical of her leadership, or what he calls the lack thereof. As a matter of fact, he wants her replaced.  "She certainly has the authority to do that and she should.  I encourage her to do that she needs to do something, but I think the people of Guam will conclude that this is just another tactic of trying to deflect attention to what the USEPA has called her mismanagement and inability to lead that agency."

As for claims made by Crisostomo that she has faced racial and sexual discrimination by the USEPA's Pacific Islands Office, the lawmaker says those are very serious allegations and advises Crisostomo act on the complaints since federal laws exist to protect against this type of prejudice.
