Guam - The Calvo administration congratulates Department of Public Health and Social Services director James Gillan on his recent election to serve on the Board of Director for the Association of State and Territorial Health officials. Governor Eddie Calvo states, "Jim is an outstanding manager.  I'm not surprised that he would receive this kind of recognition. He knows the problem areas in our community, he understands the issues and he knows how to get things done." Gillan will join other public health leaders from throughout the US to work together to support the collective mission of state-based public health organizations.

Calvo also congratulates Guam Police Department Chief of Police Fred Bordallo who is the first Chamorro to be selected to attend the Naval Postgraduate school center for Homeland Defense and Security. The program is extremely competitive and affords local, states, federal and military officials within the law enforcement and homeland security communications nationwide.

Calvo states, "The Guam Police Department has seen numerous improvements under the direction of Chief Bordallo. He has done great work to enhance the services of the police department and with this educational opportunity, he has every opportunity to grow and further improve the services of the police department."
