Appointments for vacancies on Immigration & LBJ boards
Gov. Lolo Matalasi Moliga has made two new appointments, one each for the Immigration Board and the LBJ Medical Center board.
Former director of the Department of Homeland Security Mike Sala is the newest member of the immigration Board, appointed by the governor in a memo dated yesterday. The memo says Sala fills the vacancy on the board.
Sala “is a seasoned law enforcement officer who spent his entire professional career in the law enforcement arena,” said Lolo and noted Sala had served for many years as deputy police commissioner, as well as interim acting commission on numerous occasions.
Additionally, Sala championed the establishment of ASDHS and was appointed the first director “of this newly reconstituted law enforcement agency chartered to protect our territory from foreign hostile instruction which threatens the lives of our people,” said Lolo.
He says there is no doubt that Sala will contribute invaluably to the current efforts of the board “to improve the integrity and equitable enforcement of its policies.”
For the hospital board, Lolo appointed Etenauga Lutu to replace Leiataua Leuga Turner whose appointment was rejected by the Senate last month.
Mrs. Lutu “is a consummate healthcare professional with extensive experience in healthcare having spent many years serving as director of nursing at LBJ”,” he said in a memo dated yesterday.
According to the governor, Mrs. Lutu will certainly be a great asset to the board “at a time the hospital is undergoing its organizational transformation aimed not only to improve its overall efficiency and effectiveness but also to sensitize itself to the heavy financial burden that the general public is made to bear due to the unresponsive financial policies to the socio-economic status of our people.”
Mrs. Lutu is the wife of current Attorney General Afoa L Su’esu’e Lutu
