Hanabusa to Quit HART? -- Board OKs multi-year contract with CEO Lori Kahikina, subject to negotiations

SA: … Lori Kahikina’s position as the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation’s top executive and her leadership of the rail agency’s nearly $10 billion city Skyline project is expected to continue for the foreseeable future, following a vote of its board of director’s this afternoon.

He added that he and his wife raised Christopher to be a good kid, but then, “My son got bit by the drug bug and he has a drug problem and he needs help.”
