This story took my breath away! Why isn't anyone helping the community of Hana. This is totally a fraud and scam, at the expense of lives and taxpayer dollars. Or, could it be, nothing is being done, because politicians are all in this same scam. Sure would like to see the internal financial report as a serious taxpayer and donor. Where is the money going? I did some research of my own on Hana health and could not believe how much millions of dollars they have received in the name of the Hana community and to not involve the people is wrong. Who is the board, and who represents the community at large? Had there been good leaders on the Hana Health board, they would not have allowed this to happen. The board either needs to be educated, or they don't even care, and only want the luxury of power and control. How disappointing for a beautiful community such as Hana. Keep doing the right thing Mr. Blumer-buell, justice will one day prevail.
