Guam - With several weeks still remaining before Eddie Calvo takes the helm at Adelup, the island's governor-elect has announced the selection of Frank Arriola as his chief of staff. An entrepreneur, Frank is the son of former speaker Joaquin Arriola and former senator "Belle" Arriola and comes from a traditionally Democrat family, but was campaign manager for the Republican candidate leading up to the Decision 2010 General Election earlier this month.

Arriola is focusing on refining GovGuam's financial predicament and developing the new administration's policy initiatives.

Both Calvo and Ray Tenorio are considering members for senior leadership positions on their cabinet, to be formally announced prior to their inauguration in January.
