The Neighborhood Commission has suspended a member of the Makakilo/ Kapolei/Honokai Hale Neighborhood Board for 30 days and ordered a review of the entire board regarding problems with decorum.

The suspension, which began July 1, bars Kioni Dudley from participating on the board at Wednesday’s meeting. In April he was issued a letter of reprimand for an "argumentative" comment, the commission said.

Dudley told the Star-Advertiser on Friday, "I’m doing so much good for the community."

Makakilo resident Michael Golojuch Jr. filed 10 complaints against Dudley for comments allegedly made at an Aug. 26 neighborhood board meeting.

The commission found Dudley in violation of three counts regarding standards of conduct and order and decorum.

"I’m happy with the decision," Golojuch said. "It’s been a long time coming."

After watching video of the August meeting, the commission ordered the executive secretary of the commission to investigate whether the entire board should face sanctions for issues with order and decorum.

Meanwhile, the Ewa Neighborhood Board is in the midst of a 60-day suspension until the end of August while members receive training for order and decorum.

Tomorrow, the commission will hear four complaints against former Ewa Neighborhood Board chairman Kurt Fevella.

Two people filed four complaints against Fevella, including his alleged failure to stop community members from harassing a board member and allegedly ignoring requests to place items on the agenda.
