Governor undecided on Crisostomo's future

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Governor Felix Camacho says he will meet with board members of the Guam Environmental Protection Agency before he sits down with Administrator Lorilee Crisostomo.  With concerns raised by the USEPA and Region IX, as well as several calls for her resignation from Senator Rory Respicio and now a lawsuit filed by Senator Tom Ada, the governor is aware of the highly charged situation.

While Crisostomo has requested meetings with the governor, Camacho says he wants to first meet with the board to discuss the concerns that have been raised and determine whether the mandates of the agency are being met and whether there is proper guidance and leadership there.  "With any of our cabinet members, we want to ensure that their leadership and service is for the best interest of the agency," he said.  "If her continued presence there, it obviously has been very difficult for them over the last month or so, so there's a definite need for action, but this is where I think I can give the board some guidance on how to proceed with this."

Governor Camacho would not say whether he is satisfied with Crisostomo's performance only saying he will take issues up with the board first before he meets with the administrator.
