Governor: Tenorio incident distracts from fiscal crisis

Posted: Jul 11, 2018 4:28 PM Updated:

Governor Eddie Calvo expressed his disappointment with the actions of Lieutenant Governor Ray Tenorio, saying it's now time for the incident to run its course through the proper channels.

"It's something you don't approve of," Calvo stated. "I can't see a reason for why something like that happened. But hey - as far as I'm concerned - I think the Lt. Governor has been very candid to the people of Guam, I think our police department now needs to do its job, and I think they've done it and now it's been handed over to the Attorney General's office and I think the AG's office has to now do their job as well."

Calvo adds the incident is a distraction for more pressing matters on GovGuam's table - namely the fiscal crisis the administration and Speaker BJ Cruz are trying to prepare for. Calvo wasted no words in placing the blame for the impending crisis squarely on the shoulders of the senators.

The governor continued. "I'm deeply disappointed. As far as I'm concerned, that one issue - it's taking away from what I see is a big problem right now - is focusing on the cliff that we're going to go over in this government and this economy as a result of the Legislature."
