More lawmaker reaction to Johnson scandal

HONOLULU (KHNL) - Representative Tom Brower reacts to Rex Johnson's scandal.  In a statment, he said:

"As a Tourism committee member and 25-year Waikiki resident, I have worked with Mr. Johnson on several occasions and feel he has handled his position quite competently. We shouldn't dismiss his talent on the basis of one mistake or we risk losing his experience and leadership in this difficult year for tourism.

It's regrettable that this happened at a time when we really need Mr. Johnson's expertise. It is now up to the Hawaii Tourism Authority Board to decide Mr. Johnson's fate.

Whatever the end result, I hope it is handled expeditiously so that we can return to the issue of strengthening our tourism industry and slumping economy."

--Tom Brower Representative, District 23 Waikiki, Ala Moana, Kakaako
