I feel it is important for all of The Garden Island readers to know that Winona Rubin, who sent a negative letter against me on Saturday (“Sad state of affairs,” Letters, Oct. 11), currently works for Office of Hawaiian Affiars Chairperson Haunani Apoliona.
I am appalled that someone would hypocritically complain about “distortions” and “misinformation” and yet fail to disclose who she really works for and what the true motivations for her letter were – Job Security.
Rubin’s behavior is consistent with what she has done in the past. For example, she has written negative letters against me and signed her sister’s name to them. It is these kinds of actions that make me question the credibility and honesty of this person.
Rubin’s letter, therefore, needs to be taken with a grain of salt.
