Guam - GHURA Executive Director Marcel Camacho has been placed on administrative leave with pay for 20 days. While the board made the unanimous decision following executive session today, they are not disclosing the reasons why Camacho was placed on leave. Board Chairperson Dave Sablan would not give the reasons why the board reached its decision and he would not confirm whether the board asked for Camacho's resignation.
Last week the board expressed concerns about statements Camacho made about the Sagan Bonita project calling the executive director's comments "unprofessional" and "uncalled for". Sablan would not say whether last week's incident was what sparked the executive session discussion. Camacho left the agency after the meeting and has not returned phone calls for comment.
