The former chief executive officer of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs has been appointed executive director of a commission responsible for preparing and maintaining a roll of qualified Native Hawaiians interested in participating in their own government.
Commission Chair and former Gov. John Waihee said Thursday Clyde Namuo's appointment was effective at the beginning of the year.
Namuo will be responsible for overseeing daily operations of the roll commission. He'll be serving without pay.
The commission was established by the 2011 Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Neil Abercrombie.
Namuo retired at the end of last year after a decade of serving as OHA's top officer.
