Mayor Michael Victorino announced his appointment today of Andrew Martin as Maui County prosecuting attorney. His appointment is subject to confirmation by the Maui County Council.

“Mr. Martin is highly qualified to lead our team of prosecuting attorneys and legal support staff, and he comes with a wealth of experience. I am confident will serve our residents well and strengthen law enforcement throughout Maui County,” Mayor Victorino said. “I congratulate Mr. Martin and thank him for his service to the community.”

Andrew Martin said: “I want to thank Mayor Victorino for his appointment and for his confidence in my abilities to lead the Department of the Prosecuting Attorney. This is the greatest honor of my career. My 84 fellow employees are the hardest-working, most dedicated group of individuals I have ever had the privilege of working with. Together, we are going to give Maui County a modern, forward-thinking department that will continue to pursue justice with integrity and build upon our successful victim-centered approach.”
