Mayor Michael Victorino this evening expressed his condolences to the family and friends of the late former South Maui state Rep. Joe Bertram III.

He was elected to the state House of Representatives in 2006 and 2008, and he served on the Maui Planning Commission.

“Joe was a public servant and a strong advocate for greenways, open space, bikeways and improved public transportation,” Mayor Victorino said. “We are working with South Maui elected officials to come up with a fitting tribute to him; something that would recall how much he cared about the environment and the beauty of our island home.”

“Joe’s passing is a great loss for our community. He will be remembered fondly by all who knew him and had the privilege of serving with him.”
