Guam - Senator Ben Pangelinan has written two letters to Governor Eddie Calvo in the past two months imploring him to appoint two positions to the Chamorro Land Trust Commission which have been vacant for years.

Adelup tells KUAM that in the last year, the administration has vetted at least five candidates however those potential selections came to the conclusion that they were not ready to serve. They add the administration continues its due diligence in getting the seats filled adding it's a difficult and complicated process, noting that one of the administration's nominees Oscar Calvo was never acted on by the committee on land which is chaired by Senator Pangelinan. Meanwhile, current chairman Michael Borja's re-appointment letter to serve on the CLTC board for the next three years was submitted to the Guam Legislature earlier this month.
