New Embarrassments for Faleomavaega sister

From ABCDEFG Blog, December 2, 2015

Memo to candidates for Congress next year:  If you are seeking signatures for your nominating petition, you might start in the DOE director's office. There should be plenty of people eager to sign up even if they might be happy to see the boss, Vaitinasa Salu Hunkin-Finau move on.  They likely know Salu, the sister of defeated delegate Faleomavaega Eni Hunkin, has no prayer of being elected to Congress, for which she is said already to be campaigning hard.  Her staff hopes that after the leave she will be required to take that she will move on to some other job.

Why won't they back her?  Lots of reasons but the latest is a memo she wrote to all staff reminding them that in addition to their professional duties, they need to take turns cleaning the department's bathrooms and answering general telephone calls.

Meantime, in the page one lead Samoa News story, the director of human resources embarrassed her in demanding she "cease and desist" in the hiring of a deputy director. Another DOE professional lodged a complaint with HR that she hired someone without even interviewing the complainant, who also had applied for the job. She has been upbraided publically by the governor before so this is nothing new for her.
