Q: Congratulations on your re-election–well-deserved and great for our county. My question is in regard to a road sign located on Keolani Place airport access road. The sign is located at the airport exit, opposite Hemoloa Street. The sign has been vandalized a number of years ago and has not been repaired or replaced. Can the county replace or repair the sign? Thank you.

A: The sign you’re referring to is the “Preserve America” sign that was awarded to the county back in 2007. Preserve America is a federal initiative that encourages and supports community efforts to preserve and enjoy cultural and natural heritage. It’s unfortunate that vandals have defaced the sign. Airport officials will assist us with the removal and possible restoration of the vandalized sign. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
