LT. GOVERNOR AIONA CORRECTS HANNEMANN
HONOLULU - Lt. Governor Duke Aiona today issued the following statement regarding Mufi Hannemann's recent comments that his "opponents haven't spent one day in the private sector."
"Mufi Hannemann's comments are incorrect, and the record must be made clear on this matter.
"I have not only worked in the private sector, but I have also owned my own business.
"It is telling that his false assertion came when he was trying to promote himself. His proposals show he has more to learn when it comes to running state government."
Before being elected by the people of Hawai`i in November 2002 to serve as Lieutenant Governor, Duke Aiona owned a firm where he worked as an attorney, arbitrator, mediator, hearings officer, part-time judge and professional consultant. He opened the business in January 1999.
