In a news release Friday, Bissen’s campaign asked anyone interested in working with the new administration to send resumes to or mail them to P.O. Box 3083 Wailuku, HI 96793.

The administration is hiring for a wide sector of jobs within county government as it looks to take charge in January.

“It is time to put together a really solid team,” Bissen said in the release. “Our campaign was a reflection of how we would operate in the government, which is to organize, prioritize and to find the best people we can.”

Bissen said his team is looking to recruit new talent and retain county employees who are doing good work.

In the Nov. 8 election, Bissen won a commanding 60% of the vote in a race against Mayor Michael Victorino, who was seeking a second four-year term. Victorino has said he’ll help the new leader have a smooth transition into the county’s top job.
