***Commentary***Kubojiri Had It In The Bag

Deputy Chief Harry Kubojiri has been named to replace Retiring Police Chief Lawrence Mahuna. Kubojiri told the Hawaii Tribune-Herald, “At no time did I think I had it in the bag.”
He had it in the bag. Nevertheless, Kubojiri is a good family man and works hard to be responsive for the department. Let me know what you think.

Thanks for your service, Chief Mahuna. Quit smoking.

Mr. Mahuna plans to volunteer his time working with the youth of our island community.

    Kubojiri gave $1000 campaign contribution to Friends of Billy Kenoi. Police Commission unanimously picks Kubojiri after private executive session. I wonder what strings were pulled in between?

    How much did Chad Fujii donate to Mayor Billy’s campaign?

    You know, I don’t necessarily think there is a correlation between Kubojiri’s campaign contribution and the police commission’s unanimous vote for him for chief. Mayor Billy didn’t appoint any of those commissioners. Also, it is hard for me to imagine Pudding Lassiter involved in any shenanigans.

    I think more than anything the commission’s vote was for the fact that Kubojiri has already been acting as chief for some time.
