Sisters and Brothers,

I’m pleased to inform you that Apu Jacobsen and Kai Chang have assumed their respective positions effective 1 June (Tuesday).  Apu replaces Reid Shimabukuro as President of the Federal Firefighters of Hawaii.  Kai will take over the duties of Treasurer replacing Art Rego.  “It’s been a great ride for both Art and I.  We, along with slew of dedicated Executive Board members, shaped the Union to what it is today.  We’ve come a long way in 13 years….something I’ll never forget”.

Trust that our NEW leadership will fight for you!  Give them the support they need during this transitional period.  With a NEW Work Schedule just around the corner, the future is bright!  Don’t take for granted all of the hard work that your Union and the committee members are doing.  Be patient but be active.  Thank you for all of your years of support!  Love you all!

In Solidarity,

 

 

Reid
