Before you go

Civil Beat is a small nonprofit newsroom that provides free content with no paywall. That means readership growth alone can’t sustain our journalism. The truth is that less than 1% of our monthly readers are financial supporters. To remain a viable business model for local news, we need a higher percentage of readers-turned-donors.

Iwasa will be the first voice of reason, although they won't let her vote.  The problem is none of the rest of the board will listen.  Let's hope she can raise some viable alternatives to the same tired old story that we have to get to Ala Moana.  Good luck Natalie.

More camouflage.  Expanding the board just makes the project less likely to be successful.  Time for proven leadership for the project.  It is evident that the leadership and knowledge is lacking in the dome of Hawaii.  The state is more likely to go outside of the state to find a football coach than to bring a qualified person in to run a multi-billion dollar project.  High paying jobs for appointees is never lost on the political clans.
