A week from Monday, Hawai‘i County will swear in a new Mayor. But until noon that day, Billy Kenoi remains the chief executive of Hawai‘i County. He spoke with HPR contributing reporter Sherry Bracken about his 8 years in office.
Since 2009, the current administration has completed more than 160 major projects on Hawai'i Island. That’s more than 630 million dollars on roads, parks, sewers, housing—even rodeo arenas. Mayor Kenoi says he’s proud of the transformative nature of that spending.
