Maui’s Young and Pablo get nod from WAM
By Wendy Osher
The Senate Ways and Means Committee (WAM) this morning unanimously recommended two cabinet level appointees from Maui to respective directorship posts within the state administration.
Both recommendations will be forwarded to the full Senate for further consideration. Both come from recent directorship posts in Maui County and earned their Master’s degrees from UH-Manoa. Young and Pablo were appointed by Governor Neil Abercrombie and still face confirmation by the full Senate.
Young, 41, most recently served as the Director of the Department of Finance for the County of Maui. Previously, he worked at the Kapalua Land Co., the state Legislature, and at Kamehameha Schools. Young earned a Bachelor’s degree in American History, and a Master’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
Pablo served most recently as the Budget Director for the County of Maui, and previously served as the District Tax Manager of the state of Hawaii for Maui County. Pablo, 64, is a licensed Certified Public Accountant, graduated from St. Louis High School and earned both his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Business Administration from the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
