Manu Crabbe is a decent person and a good administrator who had an uphill struggle the day he accepted the Airport position on Kauai. The Kauai community is small and like many other "small towns", being accepted is difficult. He made poor choices of the people surrounding and supporting him and it didn't help his cause to have an "over-zealous" TSA Director knocking him down whenever a mistake was made. All airports have violations (check it out yourself)...it is only on Kauai that financial penalties was the form of punishment. Instead of working to unify, the TSA director chose to divide, separating and elevating TSA from everyone else. If anyone should have left, it should have been her.

It should be known that although Manu Crabbe is a good person he did make a few major mistakes that took him down. It is true that he did not help himself with a few bad apples, and TSA that seemed to be looking to fine everyone at the airport!! FSD Mata and all of her. Cronies walk with such arrogance that they think they run the airport. I have worked at LIH Airport for some 10 years now and have seen only one Hawaiian Airlines manager that left about a year ago stand up and question, complain, then work with them to resolve their issues!! Just hope Skinner don't get that job as he should go too.
But in the end, Manu gets fired!! Woo woo no more security breaches caused by him!!
