Guam - The Guam Waterworks Authority continues its search for a new general manager. Spokesperson Heidi Ballendorf says the Consolidated Commission on Utilities has already announced the position five weeks ago when former GWA general manager Dr. Leonard Olive resigned for personal reasons.
She explained, "Finding a general manager that has the experience required by the stipulated order is not an easy task. As the chairman of the board [Simon Sanchez] likes the say, 'Well, we can't go and get one at Kmart.' It doesn't really work that way. It's a specialized person who has had to either run a water plant or a wastewater plant and has an engineering degree. Those are all the things we're looking for."
Ballendorf says the word has already been announced in national publications. She says they've already asked a headhunter to look out for individuals fitting these qualifications.
