Did Anti-GMO Activist Rip You Off?  Maui County Can Help

Maui News, October 21, 2018:  …Maui County announced Saturday that its Office of Economic Development has begun accepting invoices from vendors who provided goods and services under the recently terminated $100,000 grant awarded to an executive assistant of County Council Member (and anti-GMO activist) Alika Atay.

The grant awarded to (anti-GMO activist) Brian Bardellini for March events celebrating Queen Ka’ahumanu’s 250th birthday has come under scrutiny by the county administration and Maui County Council.

Earlier this month, the county terminated the contract award and announced it would take over reviews and payments of $46,000 in outstanding receipts owed to vendors.

On Saturday, the Office of Economic Development said submitted vendor invoices must be complete with full contact information and detailed descriptions of services rendered or goods purchased.

The deadline for invoice submissions is 4:30 p.m. Nov. 16. Documents may be submitted to grants.oed
