Hunter Bishop Calls It Quits on His Blog… Receives Job With the County

I’d like to congratulate Hunter Bishop for his new job working with the County.

I’m sure his expertise will help all of us on this island.

It may  surprise a lot of people that he will be working for the new Mayor, Billy Kenoi.

It doesn’t surprise me at all, as I’m sure the Mayor is looking to fill quality people and Hunter is certainly a person worthy of hiring.

He recently posted that his blog today will be his last.

I wish it wasn’t, however, I can see how there could be a potential conflict of interest.

I don’t know why he couldn’t at least still write personal blogs that don’t have anything to do with politics, the county, or anything that would push buttons, as their are certainly people who work within the county and state for that matter that have their own personal blogs.

Wishing Hunter the best and I hope he remains in touch with all of us.

Congrats Hunter!

The Blogging worlds loss is the islands gain!

P.S. Let me know if you need an assistant ;)

  1. It looks like we all will have to step it up a notch. Hunter’s blog and mine were joined at the hip (Especially since we were voted best of the Big Island blogs a few years ago). His departure from the blog world will be a huge loss for this island.

    Damon – I expect as blogging becomes more prevalent, someone will be able to fill his shoes.
    I guess I’m glad I’m not attached to anyone’s “hip” and I can be as “Hip” as I want to be.

  2. Damon,

    It looks like you’ll have to pick up the slack for Hunter. I’ve been checking into your blog more and more these days.

    Thought you might like to know that your move into the blog world was the impetus for me to start my own. It’s not at all about Hawaii and somewhat “heavier” than yours in terms of content, so haven’t been promoting it on the Hawaii-based sites. Just wanted you to know the inspiration came from you.

    Good luck with the blog and also finding a job.

    Tim

    Damon – Ah thanks… I really should have started a blog a long time ago. Best of luck with yours as well.
