Community activist appointed to HART’s board of directors
HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaii House Speaker Scott Saiki has appointed community activist Natalie Iwasa to serve on the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation’s board of directors.
Iwasa, a former candidate for Honolulu City Council, will serve as a non-voting member.
“The City and County of Honolulu’s rail project poses a significant financial concern and there must be more scrutiny over HART decision-making,” said Saiki, in a statement. “Ms. Iwasa is an independent, critical thinker who is knowledgeable and who has formed her own opinions on HART and mass transit.”
He added that Iwasa will help increase accountability and transparency at HART.
Iwasa is a licensed certified public accountant and certified fraud examiner.
Her term begins Tuesday and runs for an indefinite period of time.
