Governor Lou Leon Guerrero is meeting with the Chamorro Land Trust Commission to decide the fate of CLTC administrative director Jack Hattig III.

The CLTC had called for a meeting with the governor after deciding last week that Hattig “was not suited” as administrative director of the CLTC.

Hattig is staying on as administrative director until the CLTC meets with the governor and a decision is made one way or another on whether Hattig will stay or whether a replacement will be named.

“No decisions have been made, and I’m meeting with the chair this afternoon,” Leon Guerrero said during a news conference after the Earth Month virtual signing proclamation.

Earlier, the governor expressed confidence in Hattig, saying: “I am confident that Jack did not intentionally mean anything contrary to the law and regulations of the commission.”

She added: “We are transparent and accountable to the people. We are transparent with reports, meetings, and minutes … as far as I am concerned, we are following everything that we are required to do.”
