Hawaiian Homes Commission nomination mix-up

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) A state agency says it told the wrong man he was nominated to the board of the Hawaiian Homes Commission.

Hawaii News Now reports William "Billy" Richardson was notified he was a nominee, so he told all his friends and started preparing for the confirmation process.

But state Boards and Commission Manager Jayson Muraki says a confirmation email was "inadvertently" sent to the wrong William Richardson.

The letter should have gone to the William Richardson who heads a venture capital firm and is the son of a former Hawaii Supreme Court justice.

Renwick Tassill of the Hawaiian Homes Commission says the mix-up shows the state places a low priority on Hawaiian issues.

Muraki says the agency is reviewing its internal notification process to ensure it doesn't happen again.
