Appointment to water panel should be rescinded

Is there an elephant on the water commission nominating committee?

State Senate President Donna Mercado Kim has appointed Monsanto lobbyist Alan Takemoto to the water commission nominating committee.

She has appointed this partisan, multinational corporate lobbyist instead of a trained scientist or county advocate who will speak for the entire population of Maui.

Our water is precious. Monsanto doesn’t represent the general population on water any more than an elephant would.

Please, Sen. Kim, rescind this appointment.
