Things are going from bad to worse for Hawaii County Mayor Billy Kenoi following the release and later withdrawal of a profanity-laced video taken at the Hawaii Congress of Planning Officials Conference on Kauai this past Wednesday.
A facebook video taken by Hawaii Land Use Commissioner Jonathan Likeke Scheuer showed the mayor giving a rambling speech praising Kauai Mayor Bernard Carvalho on Wednesday night “during a social gathering at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa in Koloa.”
Reporter John Burnett said reaction to the mayor’s extemporaneous remarks was mixed, noting that “while there was some applause and howls in the room, that mood did not appear to be unanimous.”
Scheuer admitted to posting the video on facebook but “declined to otherwise comment.”
The conference ends today, with a Land Use Commission meeting set for 1 p.m. at the Grand Hyatt Kauai.
