HILO, Hawaii (AP) - A deputy in Hawaii County's Office of Corporation Counsel is moving up to become the county's top civil lawyer.

Mayor Billy Kenoi has appointed Molly Amai Stebbins as the new corporation counsel. The appointment was effective Tuesday and subject to confirmation by the county council.

Stebbins replaces Lincoln Ashida, who resigned last month to take a job with a private law firm.

Stebbins has served as deputy corporation counsel since 2007 and is currently assigned to represent the county police and fire departments.

She's a graduate of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and the University of Hawaii's William S. Richardson School of Law.

Laureen Martin has been appointed as assistant corporation counsel. She places Katherine Garson who will remain with the office as a deputy.
