(Tumon, Guam) Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero is expanding her high-paid cabinet as she threatens the furlough of rank and file classified employees. The governor today appointed Jillette Leon Guerrero to be executive director of the Council of the Arts and Humanities Agency, which is closed.


Department of Chamorro Affairs president Ann Marie Arceo has been filling in the executive director's position, which has been vacant for years, following former Gov. Eddie Calvo's reorganization of CAHA under DCA.


The vacant position was accounted for in the Fiscal Year 2020 budget, but left unfunded.


The appointment is being made at a time, when COVID-19 clinics are not being compensated, and when GovGuam front liners are having to fight for pay they have earned and accrued.
