Weisenberger won't run for AG this fall

by Nick Delgado

Guam - During a special ceremony in the Guam Supreme Court, John Weisenberger was sworn-in to his new position as the island's acting attorney general this morning.  Appointed by Governor Felix Camacho, Weisenberger will now fill the position as the chief legal officer of the Government of Guam for the remainder of the Camacho-Cruz Administration.

He was previously an assistant attorney general and the head of the Office of the Public Guardian.  Weisenberger confirms he has no intention to run for the election attorney general position in the upcoming general election.

"I am not running to be the attorney general," he told KUAM News.  "I think that's one of the reasons why this was a good choice by Governor Camacho - I'm not going to be involved in the election, I'm going to be involved as the chief law enforcement officer of the territory and then I hope to become an assistant attorney general, revert right back to my old position on January 1 or 2nd in 2011."

Weisenberger says he intends to move forward with the mission that Alicia Limtiaco had begun, and ensure a smooth transition for the new AG.
