The nominations of seven members of Mayor Kirk Caldwell’s cabinet sailed through the City Council today.

Approved 9-0 were: Mark Rigg as emergency services director; Clarke Bright as Royal Hawaiian Band director; Sherilyn Kajiwara as customer services director; Ross Sasamura as chief engineer and director of facility maintenance; Lori Kahikina as director of environmental services; Chris Takashige as director of design and construction; and Michael Formby as director of transportation services.
