Governor looking for new leader for EPA

by Nick Delgado

Guam - A new administrator for the Guam Environmental Protection Agency could be announced by the end of next month as Governor Felix Camacho has already actively begun looking for a replacement.  "I have in mind an individual that is going to be replacing her [Lorilee Crisostomo], but that's subject to the board.  I think with her resignation that was submitted certainly it has to be officially accepted by the entire board and as to the effective date that will determine when the next individual will sit," he shared.

When KUAM News asked Camacho if Crisostomo stated any reason why she felt she needed to step down," he responded, "I think most especially your station would know that; I'm surprised you would even ask me that question. Thank you."

Crisostomo submitted her resignation last week. Senator Rory Respicio has been calling on her resignation partially as a result of a USEPA report criticizing how she was managing federal money as well as stalling the abandoned vehicles cleanup project.  The Guam EPA board is scheduled to meet next month.
