I had a decade-long client relationship with Hawaii’s 1000 Friends. I was honored to collaborate with the fabulous Muriel Seto and Donna Wong on some the organization’s landmark legal wins. My own mentor in the field of water use was Hawaii’s legendary Martha Black.

The two following media releases less than a week apart demonstrate the power of a well-organized group of committed people with fearless leadership. It was a 24/7 proposition to win this and we won it! Together, we had THE databases and I had the technology to do the job. The Hawaii State House of Representatives caved!
