Governor reveals he has sent warning letters to some directors

Some members of the cabinet have received warning letters from Governor Lolo Moliga.

This was revealed by the governor himself at a cabinet meeting this morning.

The governor didn’t mince words when he laid out that he and the lt. governor expected directors to carry out their duties and ensure that what the public was promised, that is getting the best service from this administration, would be realized.

He sternly told directors it appears that some have the attitude of just cruising and occupying the directors seat until the end of this administration.

He had this message for those with this mind set.

Lolo told the cabinet he has sent some of them warning letters, adding that many times the directors cant be found in their offices, either they’re off island or somewhere else.

He added that he and the lt governor do not have any intention of leaving a government that is worse off than when they came in.

He said they had made it clear to directors at the start of this administration the first term was easier than the second one.

And they will not renege on their promise to the people to make improvements and raise the peoples standard of living.

The governor said they had set out in this term to do great things for the people, things that have never been done before so that there is a solid foundation for the territory.

    Step in the right direction – but please governor (not that you’ll read this, or that your staff ever will) – please, terminate the ones that do not do any good.

    Some people are strong in their areas like the job they did prior but are POOR leaders and are leaving their Departments in ruins because of that lack of leadership and the lack of vision. You have three years left to hopefully transition a successful administration (to the Lt? or someone new?) NOW is the time to take action against these guys, if you wait until the two year mark you’ll never get anything done. Too many departments are business as usual and have been since they existed, without any efforts to clean up the inside, create standard operating procedures and organize them.

    I had such high hopes when you guys created an organizational committee/task force, but it fell apart because your Directors don’t care and there was too much micromanagement.

    How many more “stern warnings” will it take the governor to finally realize that his cabinet members are also governors themselves? How many more times are you going to circle the same mound? More carbon dioxide emissions releasing into the atmosphere.

    1. Really?!?!

      What are you talking about Peter?!?! Good job, really?!?! Well, looks like you don’t have enough the slightest clue of what’s going on in the world, let alone the American Samoa Government. This is by far those worst administration ever. They’ve wasted millions upon millions of dollars, and never in AS history has tax refunds been issued this late. The fiscal year is almost over and they haven’t even reached the March filiers.

    If they’re not doing their job, tell them to clean out ther desk n go home . You don’t have to babysit nobody. Put someone in there who can do the job. E gau lava le sila I le fai.

    BS.

    You rehired Meki after even the church members of multiple faiths spoke how he should not been put back in the directors seat. You lied by saying every director had to “reapply.” You rehired everyone. Look around, has any one of your directors done anything to improve what they inherited by the former administration?

    Besides building with grant funds that come to the territory with or without you.

    DHR, DPS, LBJ, ASCC, DOE — these are the departments that need the most help. They all have gone backwards by 50 years. Every director blames the director before; while the entire population rests on these people.

    This economy, education, and healthcare are in the toilet. The only agency keeping this ship afloat is DOI and the private sector holding their own.

      DOI is not a local agency-its a federal agency, you need to get your facts check before
      you hit the keyboard, like others said-togi sau stone.

    “He added that he and the lt governor do not have any intention of leaving a government that is worse off than when they came in.”

    Yeah, sorry – that ship has sailed. The goal should now be to not leave the gov’t in ruin by 2020. Good luck with that.

  8. PALAGI GOVERNOR

    The best way to do it is to vote for a Palagi governor, because we make a lot of excuses by holding the governor title by our own people, but when our own people get the title they only care about there own family this is not something new. BUT PLEASE WAKE UP.
