Planning Director Hunt resigns, Aoki named as replacement
Maui Planning Director Jeff Hunt resigned from his post, opting to return to his earlier position as West Maui Planner with the department’s Current Planning Division.
Maui Mayor Charmaine Tavares today named Kathleen Ross Aoki as Hunt’s replacement. Aoki most recently served as Deputy Director. The deputy position will be filled by currently Planning Division supervisor Ann Cua who has been with the department 28 years. The changes go into effect on May 1.
Cua earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Hawaii – Hilo and is a graduate of St. Anthony High School in Wailuku. She lives in Makawao with her husband Clifford and their two children.
“I’m confident that under the leadership and guidance of Director Aoki and Deputy Director Cua, the department will transition seamlessly,” said Mayor Tavares. “I’ve accepted Jeff Hunt’s resignation and appreciate all that he has contributed,” she said.
