Guam - Despite the possibility of a recount, the Calvo/Tenorio team is already moving forward with their transition, as is Governor Felix Camacho.  His deputy chief of staff, Shawn Gumataotao, says their transition paperwork is complete. The Camacho Administration has been getting things in order for the island's new governor and lieutenant governor to ensure they are aware of the issues facing each government agency.

"Everything from the budget, total staffing, staffing patterns, what's the actual mandates set up by statue, the key issues facing them today, so they are going to get a real snapshot of the current operational situation of each of the agencies," Gumataotao said.

Upon the Guam Election Commission's certification of the results from the Decision 2010 General Election, Camacho and Lieutenant Governor Mike Cruz will meet with their successors.  Gumataotao added that the new governor will also be sent to the National Governor's Association Meeting in Colorado in a few weeks.
