Governor Lou Leon Guerrero has appointed three new cabinet members to the Leon Guerrero-Tenorio Administration:

· John Burch has been appointed to lead the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) as its new Director;

· Robert D. Camacho will join the Department of Corrections (DOC) as its Deputy Director; and

· Josie O’Mallan will join the Department of Public Health and Social Services (DPHSS) as its Deputy Director of Social Services.

“Mr. Burch has years of government experience and has previously served as director of multiple government agencies. He was a fine educator and I am confident that with his leadership experience, he can help turn things around quickly at DPR,” said Governor Leon Guerrero. “I am grateful to Bob Camacho for accepting the position at DOC and coming back to government after retirement. It just speaks volumes about his commitment to the people of Guam. He has a long history in law enforcement, having previously served as DOC’s Director, the Deputy Chief of Police at the Guam Police Department, and most recently as the Airport Chief of Police.

“Josie O’Mallan has been with Public Health for over 30 years and has had measurable success with the agency. Throughout those 30 years, she received training, awards and promotions, rose through the ranks, and demonstrated that she is capable and deserving of her leadership positions. Her addition to the department will assist DPHSS through the many challenges it faces,” the governor said.
