Guam - Governor Eddie Baza Calvo is looking to find a candidate for the Chief position at the Guam Fire Department. Earlier this week, lawmakers referred the appointment of John Salas back to the Committee on Public Safety. Several Senators questioned Salas' ability to lead the critical agency on session floor.

Over the last couple days dozens of firefighters have been staging peaceful protests at the Legislature hoping to convince senators to reconsider their decision and place Salas' appointment up for a vote. Governor Calvo today said it takes a lot to serve the public and to gain the trust of our firefighters."

John did both of those things. I'm not sure why the Legislature refused to act on his nomination," the Governor stated. He added his senior staff are exploring options right now. No final decision has been made yet. All I can say right now is, "thank you, John. I will always be grateful to you and your family," said Governor Calvo.
