Do Not Confirm Plantation Luna Bill Balfour to Water Commission

To be delivered to The Hawaii State House, The Hawaii State Senate, and Governor David Ige

Petition Statement

Governor Ige has chosen to replace esteemed Richardson Law School Professor, Denise Antolini, with an old-style plantation luna who also has worked for Monsanto and Amfac, Inc. This will create a majority who favor the plantations instead of the rule of law. Where's the "balance"?
There are currently 3,942 signatures. NEW goal - We need 4,000 signatures!

Bill Balfour has voted on several key commission decisions that were later overturned by the Hawaii Supreme Court. No one else serving on the commission now has had their decisions overturned. Why bring back the failed views from the past?
