Guam - Governor Eddie Calvo today appointed Pete Calvo to serve as the deputy director of the Department of Parks & Recreation. The agency's oversight chair, Senator Tina Muna Barnes said Calvo's term as director expired this week, as the law requires the Parks & Rec Commission to first approve the nomination before the legislature can confirm him.

The governor's chief legal counsel James Canto says Calvo will be filling in as acting director since the position is currently vacant. Canto states, "When the Parks & Rec commission is eventually empanelled, it will nominate a permanent director at that time."

Canto adds the administration respects the process, but at the same time must be able to function with proper managerial direction.
