HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - An acting executive director has been appointed to lead the Honolulu Ethics Commission.
Laurie Wong-Nowinski will begin at the commission August 1.
Wong-Nowinski worked closely with the former executive director of the commission, Chuck Totto, as his associate legal counsel.
Totto resigned earlier this month after 16 years with the commission. Prior to his departure, Totto was often at odds with Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell and Honolulu Police Chief Louis Kealoha.
