The Hawaii County elections office has been out of touch with the state elections office for weeks. It also hasn't responded to questions from the media. And now, as Sherry Bracken reports from the Big Island, the mystery has only deepened.
Hawaii County’s Elections Office was closed Monday with no warning, and no explanation—only 19 days before the primary election. From Hawaii Island, HPR’s Sherry Bracken tells us what she’s been able to find out about the mystery.
The leading candidates for Hawaii County mayor have now met in two moderated candidate forums with another forum tomorrow at Waimea Middle School. HPR's Sherry Bracken says the candidates talked about their reasons for running and priorities if elected.
Editor's note: Sherry Bracken is the moderator for the referenced forums.
In the last three weeks, brush fires have burned about 6,000 acres on Hawaii Island, which just highlights the drought conditions on that island. HPR's Sherry Bracken talked to the Hawaii County Fire Chief about the situation.
