Nishiki fought good fight for local people

This letter is in response to “Letter attempts to rewrite history regarding Nishiki” (Letters, Nov. 1).

No council person in the history of the Maui County Council fought as hard or as long to protect Maui’s natural environment and the quality of life for local people as Wayne Nishiki did.

The letter writer brought up the loan that Wayne received from a developer. I attended the Ethics Board hearing on that matter. They acquitted Wayne of wrongdoing. Perhaps the letter writer should contemplate his own past deeds.
