Council member helps to correct problem

For years, I have been unable to walk to Foodland in Pukalani because one corner of the intersection of Makani Road and Old Haleakala Highway was covered with bushes.

Last month, I contacted Maui County Council Member Yuki Lei Sugimura at the Upcountry Farmers Market, where she regularly meets constituents, and explained my problem. She took careful notes and later called me to confirm the specifics.

Two weeks later, a group of men was busily chopping, and today I was able to walk up to Foodland without difficulty. Thank you, Yuki Lei!
