Governor Abercrombie: The First 10 Months
The Governor likes to shoot from the lip attacking people at random, but does not like anybody to take offense at him, or to show any independence.
For the past five months progressives have been gravely concerned that the Governor is out of control. Those in the administration keep pushing back the time when we should say anything. Once it was, “wait till July” but that time has come and gone. Now it’s “wait until January.”
Gov. proclaims that names of candidates for Hawaii Supreme Court vacancy are to be kept secret.
Gov. threatens to condemn Molokai Ranch to force the island to accept Big Wind
Gov. asks for the resignations of 28 appointed members of the state Public Utilities Commission, Land Use Commission, Public Housing Authority, Board of Land and Natural Resources and the Stadium Authority.
Following the resignation of PUC Commissioner Carlito Caliboso, persistent government rumors circulate that the Governor threatened to replace PUC Chair Morita.

Thank you for doing this Henry.
When will we start impeachment proceedings and what needs to be done next?
You forgot the OHA ʻCEOʻ Clyde Namuo also being replaced. Funny, I donʻt recall that seat or Namuo ever being called CEO. Do you?
Thank you for gathering up all this information. I have been more and more concerned at his undemocratic, non-progressive behavior. (What happened to the guy we THOUGHT we were voting for?) But seeing it all laid out like this...well, shall we ask for a recall?
Does Coppa's ascension mark the completion of the corporate/development/construction union takeover of the Abercrombie administration, or does it just look that way? Governor "Bait and Switch" is not who I voted for.
