Guam - Governor Eddie Calvo says despite some of the criticism on his re-appointment, he has total confidence in Ed Ilao. "What I believe what Eddie has done and like other board members, they've done things that may not have been politically popular, but they're doing the right things," he said.

"It's their fiduciary responsibility to ensure that management and workers of an agency are following the laws and rules so I'm hopeful that the legislature can see fit and separate some of the rhetoric that is coming out with regards to focusing on the facts and why decisions have been made and with those decisions being made, right decisions being made, it's in the best interest of the Port and the best interest of the people of Guam."

Calvo adds he's working to ensure there is continuity when deciding whether to reappoint or appoint new members to the board.
