Congratulations to Rep. Marcus Oshiro and Senate President Shan Tsutsui for both being named"Legislator of the Year" by the Hawaii State Association of Counties (HSAC).
The awards were presented yesterday at the Grand Wailea Resort on Maui where HSAC held their annual meeting for 2011.
Rep. Oshiro shares a laugh with Maui County Council Chair Danny Mateo after presenting "omiyage" from Oahu - plastic bags. The Maui County Council voted to ban plastic bags last year, effective January 2011, and they have now become a rarity on Maui. Guess it's working!
