Molina replaces Stephen Welling, who resigned effective Aug. 31.

“I welcome Mr. Molina to my team, and I’m confident in his abilities to effectively serve the people of Maui County in his new position,” Mayor Victorino said. “His civil engineering education and experience construction project management will be valuable assets as he works with DPW Director Rowena Dagdag-Andaya to provide leadership for this important department.”

Molina’s appointment will take effect when he begins work early next month.

Molina earned a bachelor of science degree in environmental engineering from Oregon State University (June 2010), and he’s a 2005 graduate of Kamehameha Schools (Kapalama). His skills include management of civil engineering projects both as a contractor and a public utility operator. He has literacy of state procurement laws and the county legislative process. He’s familiar with county permitting, planning, budgeting and the public review process.


Since March 2018, Molina has been project engineer with T.J. Gomes Trucking Co. There, he has overseen construction of civil engineering projects, including preparing cost estimates for project bidding and managing construction contracts. From January 2016 to February 2018, he was a civil engineer III with the Maui County Department of Water Supply. From December 2013 to December 2015, he was a legislative analyst with the Office of Council Services.
