Statement from Governor Neil Abercrombie on Power Situation

From the Governors Office:

“I have spoken with leaders of Hawaiian Electric Company and the union.  My thought is that they can set aside their respective positions during this emergency situation until the public’s safety is taken care of.

“The most important thing right now is restoring electric services for residents and ensuring their health and security then resume negotiations.”
