Guam - Following the passing of Monte Mafnas in April, Governor Eddie Calvo has appointed Chamorro Land Trust Commission chairman Mike Borja as the acting director of the Department of Land Management.

Borja tells KUAM that Mafnas brought a lot of great ideas to the table and looks forward to continuing in the late director's efforts. "And I also look to try and see what we can do this government is trying to do more with less and obviously I would like to have more people within the organization but we have to work with what we have so I'm trying to find ways how we can do better and do more with what we got and hopefully with issues like technology and getting things to all be digitized," he said.

Borja is the president of Delta Management Corporation and holds a bachelor of arts degree from Creighton University and a master of science degree from Troy State University. Borja has served in the CLTC since 2011. As for what it means for the CLTC, Borja says while he has had to step down, two other individuals have been appointed by the governor in order to reach quorum.  Borja's confirmation hearing meanwhile is set for this Monday at the Guam Legislature.
