Hawaii human services director steps down

By 67AM KPUA News

HONOLULU (AP) The director of Hawaii's Department of Human Services is stepping down from her position, effective immediately.

The governor's office says Patricia McManaman announced her decision Friday, citing personal reasons. She has led the department since 2010.

Gov. Neil Abercrombie is naming Deputy Director Barbara Yamashita as acting director.

Prior to becoming director, McManaman practiced law in Hawaii for more than 30 years. She also served as a per diem judge in District Court and Family Court for 17 years.

The governor touts highlights of her leadership including making it faster to access food stamps and other public benefits.
