Wallon Young will arrive and be the new deputy director at CUC, according to the Saipan Tribune. He'll earn between $156,000 and $180,000 per year.
In December 2008, American Samoa news reported that Wallon Young's business, Quantum Pacific, has a three month contract with the CNMI's CUC for $250,000, to act as consultants--unusual consultants in that they are to implement their proposals as well.
This seems to be part of the plan described in the Marianas Variety, also in December 2008--a $5.5 million plan.
Will it all work? Will we be able to end our one-year contract with Aggreko at exorbitant rates? And more significantly, is there a plan in place for routine and necessary maintenance when everything is repaired?
Here's hoping that something will work out right.
