How much are you paying for the federal receiver?

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Governor's Office has been trying to get information from the Attorney Generals' Office regarding the federal receiver's invoices and expenditures. It was in June 2013 the AG's Office stopped remitting those reports to the Department of Administration.  

But the paper trail they do have in their hands as them dumping on how much you and I are paying GBB.

-Some of the concerns from Adelup include what they call the multi million dollar bend in the road. At issue the receiver built an access road from Route 4 Inarajan into Dandan so that trash trucks could get to the Layon landfill. According to the Governors Office the road was designed around a parcel of what was thought to be private property but anywhere between $10-15 million later it was determined the road was actually government property after all.

-Adelup meanwhile estimates GBB's principal associate David Manning has been paid $1.9 million to date

-$1.7 million to GBB vice president Chris Lund

-$1.5 million to pay for GBB senior vice president Chace Anderson

-$8 million for total labor cost for GBB employees

-Close to $700,000 for first class plane tickets.

Other examples of expenditures throughout the years and previously reported by KUAM include

-The  first month of receivership:  $500 to David Manning for two hours of work to "document review, review and respond to email and media interview".

-On March 24th, 2008:  $180 for Chace Anderson's dinner at Hotel Santa Fe

- The next day:  $78 for his dinner at Jamaican Grill

- The next day:  $146 for meal at Tumon Bay Lobster & Grill

- The next day:  $110 for breakfast at The Hyatt Regency Guam

-The paper trail also reveals that on August 5, 2008:  $176.53 for shopping at Kmart, which included a 14-inch barbeque grill, a vacuum cleaner, charcoal lighter, and hickory wood chips for grilling

- January 2009:  $930.51 for David Manning to stay for two days at The Sheraton Waikiki Hotel in Hawaii
