Governor says Guard needs to move on

Posted: Updated:

In the latest salvo in the feud that's been unfolding over the Guam National Guard since the governor announced her new Adjutant General-appointee, Lt. Col Esther Aguigui, former TAG Roderick Leon Guerrero, who is out processing, spoke with us about his dispute over the administration's transition report yesterday. The report apparently lists concerns of low morale, a hostile workplace and sexual harassment.

The former general, however, disagreed with this.

Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero today said the information in the report was provided to enlisted men and women in the Guard. And she says enough is enough.

"I think we just need to move on," the governor said. "I think it's getting a bit too, I don't know what the word is, but she is a qualified woman, she is eligible by law. I have the fullest authority to do what I have done. I think our people of Guam just need to move on, the Guard needs to move on, I need to move on. Adjutant Gen. Esther Aguigui move on and do the work and mission she has been instructed to do."

Leon Guerrero said the reputation at the Guam Guard remains professional, trustworthy and strong.
