White currently Chairs the Council’s Economic Development, Agriculture and Recreation Committee.  Outside of the Council, he spent 25 years managing the Kaanapali Beach Hotel and developing the hotel’s award-winning Hawaiian cultural program, the Pookela Project.

During the radio program, White is expected to discuss the county’s current economic landscape, including visitor spending, which accounts for approximately 80% of economic activity in Maui County.  White will also discuss the county’s revenue stream, which includes $110 million in property taxes and Transient Accommodations Tax funds generated by visitor accommodations.

The interview will be conducted live on Monday, February 14 from 9 – 10 a.m. It will air on Pacific Radio Group’s KNUI AM 900 with hosts Tom Blackburn-Rodriguez and Kellie Pali.


The public is invited to call the show at 856-2836 with questions related to the topic.
