The loonie left proves once again that they are good at getting appointed or elected to positions of authority, but like da big Owe, once there they allow their ideology to prevent them from leading, governing, managing, or even using common sense. Witness M. Kaleo Manuel, Deputy Director of Hawaii's Commission on Water Resource Management:
Official Who Ignored Request for Water During Maui Inferno: 'Water Requires Conversations Around Equity'
During the inferno that devastated part of the island of Maui, wiping entire towns off the map and possibly killing more than a thousand people (once a full assessment can be made), people on Maui begged state officials to allow West Maui stream water to be diverted to fill up reservoirs for firefighting. That request went to M. Kaleo Manuel, Deputy Director of Hawaii's Commission on Water Resource Management, and he delayed approval of that water for five hours - five hours in which the once-contained fire exploded. By the time the approval was received, workers were unable to reach the siphon release so that the water could be diverted. Now we're learning that Manuel, an Obama Foundation Leader for the Asia Pacific Region, is a climate change activist and DEI devotee who's said, "Like, we can share [water], but it requires true conversations about equity."
