Maui Liquor director to hand position to Son?

MN: … The search for a new Maui County Liquor Control director appears to have been narrowed to two candidates, including a current liquor control officer who is the son of a former liquor control director.

Layne Silva, who has worked for the Department of Liquor Control for 21 years, and Timothy Poindexter, a former California Highway Patrol sergeant who is currently director of safety and security at Turtle Bay Resort on Oahu, are the two candidates who are being considered for the job, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Although two other finalists for the position are listed on the agenda of a Liquor Control Commission special meeting today, only Silva and Poindexter have been asked to be available for additional interviews, the source said.

Public testimony will be taken at the meeting, which begins at 9 a.m. and will be held by videoconference. People can attend or testify at the meeting by videoconference using the link or by phone by calling (408) 915-6290 and entering meeting ID code 200439852….

(Really Obvious Question: Would the son expose any wrongdoing committed under the father?  Duh.)
