Standing Room Crowd on Proposed Big Island Layoffs

Among those presenting testimony are Hawaii Island Farm Bureau President Delan Perry and Mr. Richard Ha.

A standing room crowd filled the Hawaii County Civil Service conference room to testify before the Senate Ad Hoc Committee chaired by Senator Russel Kokubun regarding proposed closure of Kulani Correctional Facility and the layoff of 14 of the 15 state agricultural inspectors on the island. The Senators invited myself and other members of the House to join then at the table.
