Governor's GEPB appointee not qualified

Posted: Updated:

by Nick Delgado

Guam - The Governor's Office has confirmed that it will have to replace at least one of the appointees to the Guam Education Policy Board. Earlier this week five members were announced, however it seems former Chuuk governor Dr. Ancito Walter does not meet the qualifications to be a member.

The problem: the law mandates that a member must be a United States citizen to serve on the board. Adelup staffers say they are currently working to find a replacement soon.

The Board meanwhile is scheduled to meet on January 27 to discuss the Department of Education's budget.
