Guam - Vice Speaker BJ Cruz has written to Lieutenant Governor Ray Tenorio on the processing challenge the Department of Corrections faces in hiring. In the letter Cruz notes the lieutenant governor has not followed through on a pledge writing, "I implore you to use the full weight of your office and your ongoing designation as public safety overseer to expedite the processing of these vacancies within the next few weeks." Cruz is also seeking all documents related to the processing of the job vacancies. The vice speaker says he can also be of assistance to the lieutenant governor and DOA in averting what agency officials have identified as a potential shortfall in the department's FY15 budget request.
