ACTING Gov. Victor Hocog has removed Lino Tenorio as acting commissioner of the Department of Corrections and appointed former Commissioner Georgia Cabrera as the acting chief until a permanent replacement is announced.
In his letter dated April 28, Hocog told Tenorio that he decided to withdraw his nomination to serve as the acting Corrections commissioner effective April 30.
Hocog, in a separate letter dated April 28, named Cabrera as acting commissioner effective May 1.
Tenorio declined to comment and Variety was unable to get a statement from the administration.
Tenorio was appointed by Gov. Ralph Torres in February to succeed Cabrera who was then reassigned to the department’s civil division.
Cabrera will remain division director while serving as acting commissioner.
