8/30/18 #kihei We offered supportive testimony at South Maui Councilor Kelly King’s Planning Committee this morning concerning the fast approaching sea level rise. We addressed that while it is of course a world wide issue, our kuleana is to express concerns for this community, and boy do we need to plan for this.

The start of the meeting was delayed because once again with only three Councilors present at 9:00 AM, Chair King did not have quorum, but about 9:05 late arriving Yuki Lea Sugimura made an all wahine fourth and meeting commenced absent voting members Guzman, Hokama and White again.

But wait, another delay as Akaku, Maui Community Media technical problems screening the meeting arose, so quick recess, then another just before our testimony, but then it was a go.

So we offered our support, and the resolution was approved 5-0, as by now Hokama showed up at 9:40 AM.
