The Senate voted unanimously this morning to confirm Tialuga Vincent Iuli as Director of the Office of Public Information/KVZK-TV. All 16 senators present at today’s session voted in support of Tialuga.
The House held a confirmation hearing for the director nominee last Friday but there’s been no confirmation vote scheduled.
Tialuga has been Deputy Director of the Office of Public Information for the past 7 years. The director position became vacant in May when former Director Tuimavave Tauapa’i Laupola was moved to the Governor’s Office.
Tuimavave is now Acting Chief Procurement Officer after the resignation of former CPO Dr. Oreta Mapu Crichton to run for Congress.
Tialuga was press officer in the Governor’s Office during the Togiola/Faoa Administration.
