Mayor Victorino releases statement about threats of armed violence at State Capitols

The FBI recently released information that extremist groups are calling for armed protests at all 50 state capitols related to the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden later this month. In response to the FBI bulletin, County of Maui Mayor Michael Victorino issued the following statement today:

“The people of Maui County rise above this type of conflict because our culture teaches us how to disagree without being disagreeable. We expect the best, but must plan for the worst in light of last week’s siege on the US Capitol. Maui County officials remain in contact with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies to ensure public safety. The Maui Police Department and the Hawaii National Guard stand ready to take swift and decisive action against anyone who would threaten any citizen with violence and/or destruction of property.”

All County offices will remain open as usual, and closed on weekends and state holidays, including Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on Monday, Jan. 18.
