Aaron blogged about this letter to West Hawaii Today. The letter writer wonders, as I did, about the connection between C&H Ishii General Contractors. So I did a simple search for "Ishii" on the County website.
In 2005 a Ben Ishii appeared as representative of the Department of Public Works at this meeting and this meeting. He was still representing DPW in 2008 and 2009.
Is Ben related to C & H? Was DPW the agency involved in the bulldozer fiasco? Beats me, though Hilo readers (haha, if any) might know. Just trying to push the story forward.
