CSC will sign off on Susuico case

by Ken Quintanilla

Guam - The Civil Service Commission board will sign off on its decision and judgment in a case involving Ken Susuico.

It was back in May they found the Port Authority of Guam violated his merit system protections.   He was hired at the port in October 2011 as an Accountant II.

Now, here's where it gets confusing. Last year he was one of several hirings at the Port that were the focus of a Civil Service Commission post audit. According to the findings the Commission determined Susuico and three others did not meet the minimum qualifications for the positions they held at the port. In fact commissioners even determined their hiring was in violation of the merit system and ratified the findings that the hirings were null and void.

The issue was raised again in January and after hearings at the CSC, the Commission then decided the Port violated Susuico's merit system protections. They are making that decision final at tonight's hearing.

We should note the CSC also ruled the same way for Salvadore Guevara last month. He was also found not qualified for the Accountant II position at the Port. The Port has since filed a petition for judicial review of Guevara's case in the Superior Court of Guam.
