Guam – Documents from the Governor’s office show that Mark Calvo and four other staffers received raises and retro pay bonuses from federal funds.
According to the Governor’s staffing patterns Mark Calvo, Cassandra Castro, Evonnie Hocog, Carol Perez and Dwain Sanchez were all given raises and retro pay for their raises in December of 2014. It has already been reported that other GovGuam staffers received retro pay that was deemed illegal by the the Attorney General but according to documents from the Governor’s office this batch of retro pay came from federal funds. According to Governor’s office Spokeswoman Oyoal Ngiririkl these federal funds were meant for the Guam Buildup office which is the office that Mark Calvo and these four employees worked under. She says all of this spending was approved by the federal government. The staffing pattern shows that these positions were 100 percent federally funded and they show the account number that they were paid from. The GG1 forms that show the retro pay also show that the retro pay came from the same federal account as their regular salaries.
