White to lead County Council
WAILUKU – Mike White will chair the Maui County Council and Don Guzman will serve as vice-chair during the 2015-17 council term that begins Jan. 2.
“We have many important issues the council must tackle, and we are ready to get to work,” said White. “It is important that the internal administrative work is well underway so we can focus on the critical issues that directly impact our Maui County residents.”
Many of the leadership roles for each of the standing committees will remain unchanged from the current term and are currently being finalized.
“The County Council will continue to be a place where residents should feel free to voice their concerns,” added Guzman. “We work for you, and it is only through collaboration and working together will we be able to find long-term solutions for our county. Our doors are always open.”
The council’s inauguration ceremony is scheduled for Friday, Jan. 2, in the Council Chamber starting at 10 a.m. and is open to the public.
“I look forward to the new council term and working with the administration to address the needs of our residents, while continuing to shape Maui County into a place we can proudly call our home,” White concluded.
