CRAIG T. KOJIMA / SEPT. 7
Honolulu Corporation Counsel Donna Leong makes comments after oral arguments on Sept. 7 regarding a complaint filed by Hawaii’s four counties against the state relating to the proposed constitutional amendment that would allow the legislature to impose real property taxes. Behind her is Nicolette Winter, Deputy Corporation Counsel, and Patrick Wong, Head attorney, Maui Corporation Counsel. Hawaii’s four counties seek to invalidate a Nov. 6 ballot question that asks voters if they want to give the state the power to tax property in support of public education.
