Walls of Mayors, Managing Directors Unveiled on 9th Floor of County Building
WAILUKU, Maui, HI - A project to honor Maui County’s Mayors and Managing Directors was unveiled yesterday afternoon during a ceremony attended by Mayor Arakawa, former mayor Kimo Apana, and former managing directors Howard Nakamura, Anne Takabuki, Grant Chun and Jack Kulp. The family of the late Elmer Cravalho and Claro Capili were also in attendance.
The Walls of Mayors and Managing Directors are installed on the 9th floor of Kalana O Maui, in the front reception area. The photo display begins with Elmer Cravalho, who served as the first mayor of Maui County from 1969 to 1979, and ends with Mayor-elect Michael P. Victorino, who will be sworn in next Wednesday, January 2. The Wall of Managing Directors begins with the second in command from the Cravalho administration.
Mayor Alan Arakawa said the inspiration for the walls came from the County Clerk's historic display of photographs of government officials and facilities and artifacts used over the years.
Both walls are open to public viewing during business hours in the 9th floor lobby of the Kalana O Maui building.
