Community appreciates visit by council committee

The budget hearings held within our communities throughout Maui Nei has been a blessing for all. We are so grateful and appreciate Council Budget and Finance Committee Chair Mike White and members of the Maui County Council for coming all the way out to Hana to listen to the people testify on behalf of the mayor’s FY 2014 proposed budget.

To witness each nonprofit group and individuals speak on behalf of one another is what makes the community of Hana so special and unique. I applaud my community for taking time out of their busy schedule to attend to such a worthy cause. It is amazing when many voices can become one, and it is all for the love of our keiki to kupuna and the essential services we continue to support and provide when living in the isolated and remote Hawaiian communities of East Maui.
