Department of Hawaiian Home Lands

Governor David Ige today announced he will not be nominating Jobie Masagatani for another term as head of the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands.

Masagatani will however stay on until the end of the legislative session.

Masagatani has been head of DHHL since 2012. Term limits prevent her from serving beyond May 2020.

Earlier this year, Ige announced that he planned to retain Masagatani.

As of tomorrow, tiny Norfolk Island loses the political autonomy it's enjoyed since 1979. Despite a referendum that appealed to Australia to allow the islanders some say in their political future, self-government will be replaced by a local council.
