Call for Council to Investigate Caldwell’s Zoo Coverup
By News Release @ 9:52 PM :: 4896 Views :: Honolulu County, Ethics

Ernie Martin, Chairman, Honolulu City Council              December 9, 2016

If permitted by laws or council rules of the City and County of Honolulu, I respectfully ask that you use your authority as Chairman of the Honolulu City Council to initiate an investigation or convene a hearing into Mayor Kirk Caldwell's, and his Managing Director Roy Amemiya's withholding information from the public and his appointed Director of Department of Enterprise Services about the Program Administrator of the Honolulu Zoo's (AD200) resignation.  I believe that the withholding of the information occurred as part of Mayor Caldwell's strategy to influence the election and, more specifically, City Charter Amendment Number 9.

I am submitting a copy of an email I obtained under the Uniform information Practices Act 92 F establishing the fact that Mayor Caldwell and Mr. Roy Amemiya had knowledge of the Honolulu Zoo Program Administrator's resignation on October 31, 20136.

Thank you,

Carroll Cox

Dear Guy and Tracy,

Via this letter I would like to submit my resignation from my position as Program Administrator of the Honolulu Zoo (AD200).

As discussed, I will also be submitting additional vacation time up until the 15th of December of 2016. Therefore, my final day with the City and County of Honolulu will be December 15, 2016.

Thank you for the time and support you have given me,
