Mayor Michael Victorino announced Monday the appointment of Mary Kielty as Deputy Director of the Department of Parks and Recreation. She is a 27-year veteran of the Parks Department and succeeds John Buck, who retired recently.
“Mary has a wealth of knowledge and experience working in parks and recreation, and she’s a well-respected canoe paddling coach and volunteer in our community,” Mayor Victorino said.
Kielty began her career with the County as a Summer PALS employee and has served as Recreation Leader, Chief of Aquatics, South Maui District Supervisor and, most recently, Chief of Recreation.
Her volunteer activities include coaching for Lae `ula O Kai Canoe Club at Kanaha Beach Park.
