Guam - Guam Homeland Security Advisor Mike Carey has submitted his resignation. This Friday will be his last day on the job as he and the Calvo Administration mutually agreed that he is not the right fit for the job.  Governor's chief of staff Frank Arriola says he met with Carey on Tuesday about the role of the homeland security adviser and the mission of the office and he is separating amicably from the administration.

"Mike and I came to the realization that there's a great mission, but he wasn't the right fit for us and so we worked together and came to the agreement that he would resign and we really wish him the best of luck in his future assignments," Arriola told KUAM News.

Civil Defense Administrator Chuck Ada will be the interim adviser until Adelup identifies a permanent replacement. Arriola says they are currently looking for other qualified individuals. He added Carey also provided him with some recommendations on his replacement.
