Speaker of the House Joe Souki of Maui has appointed Denise Antolini to serve on the Nominating Committee for the Commission on Water Resource Management.

Antolini is currently the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at the William S. Richardson School of Law.

She previously worked for the Sierra Club Legal Defense Fund, where she dealt with cases that primarily involved endangered species, water rights, public lands, and water pollution.

As a member of the Nominating Committee for the Commission on Water Resource Management, Antolini and three other members are charged with recommending to the governor people to serve on the commission, which has jurisdiction and final authority relating to the implementation and administration of the state water code.
