Art San Agustin Tapped to Replace Denorcy at DPHSS


Guam – Art San Agustin has been tapped to take over as the Acting Director of the Department of Health and Social Services after Linda Denorcy stepped down from the acting position Thursday.

Denocrcy’s resignation was the second Cabinet level resignation from the new Calvo Administration in as many weeks.

Last week, Gener Deliquina resigned from his acting position as Director of the Department of Administration. Deliquina resigned to attend to a family health emergency off-island.

Governor Calvo’s Chief of Staff Frank Arriola told PNC News Friday that Denorcy stepped down for much the same reason, a family health emergency.

 Denorcy was a public health veteran who had been in charge of Community Health Centers before accepting, and then resigning from the Acting Director’s position.
