Patricia Mau-Shimizu, the longtime chief clerk of the state House, will step down for a post with the Hawaii State Bar Association.
Mau-Shimizu has been the chief clerk since 1993 and has worked as a House staff member for nearly 28 years. She will be the bar association’s executive director.
“On behalf of the entire House of Representatives, I want to commend Patricia Mau-Shimizu for her many years of excellent service to this institution,” House Speaker Calvin Say said in a statement. “Pat always makes sure that the House and the sessions are running smoothly. While we will miss her exceptional knowledge and expertise on legislative matters, we wish her only the very best as she starts a new chapter at the Hawaii State Bar Association.”
