    Also today, I joined John Olsen (Puna CDP) in Hilo and Andrea Dean (Green Business consultant) in Kona (via video) to provide testimony to support Hawai`i County Resolution 731, introduced by Peter Hoffman,

    …encouraging the administration to research the application processto obtain funding for an energy worker-related training program as established through the Green Jobs Act of 2007.

    Peter Hoffman introduced the measure and is responsible for this important initial first step in learning how we can secure grants provided by the Act.
