Governor defends decision to shuffle directors

Guam - Proof that he has high expectations for his cabinet members, Governor Eddie Calvo says the recent decision to shuffle directors is to ensure the mission of the Administration is fulfilled to create a better future for the people of Guam. Several directors were moved to other agencies following assessments of their performance over the last year.

"We had some great people there, but some of them, their skill sets we see some needs in other agencies so believe that it was best for this administration and for the people of Guam to get them moved to those organizations and other entities where they can make use of the skills and talents they have," he said. "And others, they may sometimes not be the proper fit, they're great, but they were not the proper fit for that particular organization."

The Administration is currently looking to fill the director positions at the Agency for Human Resources Development and the Office of Civil Defense. The governor would not confirm if Department of Labor director Leah Beth Nahalowaa, who will be replaced and AHRD director Frank Roberto have been terminated. 

Nahalowaa and Roberto, however, say they will remain at their posts until the end of the month.
