Guam - It was late last month when Governor Eddie Calvo announced that Henry Taitano had submitted his resignation as the administrator of the Guam Economic Development Authority. Today during its board of directors meeting, it was announced that a replacement has been appointed for the time being. Deputy administrator Mana Silva Taijeron said, "We received a letter from the governor dated May 14, 2014 to all department agency heads and directors appointing the acting administrator for the Guam Economic Development Authority Mr. John A. Rios for the acting administrator affective May 15."

Rios is currently the director of the Bureau of Budget and Management Research. Rios's appointment is for a 90-day acting capacity. According to Taijeron, the acting position by law can only be up to 90 days and if Rios is to take the position permanently, he will need legislative approval and confirmation.
