Guam - After less than two years on the job, KUAM News has confirmed that Guam Waterworks Authority general manager Dr. Leonard Olive has resigned from his post.  Olive started the job in November 2008 with a three-year contract.  He came to Guam from Washington, where he served as the Washington Public Works Director. 

Consolidated Commission on Utilities Chairperson Simon Sanchez confirms Dr. Olive submitted his resignation effective at the close of business today.  KUAM News asked whether the CCU asked for Dr. Olive's resignation, to which Sanchez responded by saying, "We reached a mutual agreement and we wish Dr. Olive well."  The CCU chairman added that Olive indicated he will pursue other interests. 

Sanchez says John Benavente will resume the GWA general manager duties in the interim as the Commission starts up the search for another GM again.
