The second hour Carroll notes, the people are not paranoid, it is the government that is paranoid. Carroll shares a letter from the Senior Communications Manager from the Department of Land and Natural Resources, admonishing Carroll for attempting talking directly to department personnel about resources. The government works for the people, and the DLNR
has many scientists and specialists who can answer resource questions or respond to problems.
Carroll then talks about a former DLNR employee, Frazer McGilvray, who worked as Aquatic Resources Program Administrator for approximately 13 months, for a salary of over $100,000 a year. Based on information he received from various sources, Carroll has learned that during his 13 months he was at DLNR McGilvray took approximately
28 flights to the outer Hawaiian islands using first-class tickets that were approved by then DLNR Chairman William Aila. Not only that, McGilvray took first-class trips to the mainland, including San Antonio, St. Louis, Washington DC, Portland, Oregon, Denver, Colorado, and even the Virgin Islands. He then resigned. He did not attend a meeting in Australia that was already booked prior to his resignation. Was he the right
person for the job? We wonder what did DLNR actually get from his brief employment.
The DLNR is constantly complaining about their budget and not having enough funds to conduct their business. As we know, many things have been neglected. Yet, here comes McGilvray with lavish expenses, including Apple computers and phones, and scuba diving certification. And, he is not the only big expense, or careless use of state funds. Carroll
gives examples of the misuse of state land at two different harbors by the people leasing land from the state. Although the issues were investigated, and proved, nothing was done.
Per McGilvray's FaceBook page, he previously worked for Conservation International, an organization with ties to DLNR. McGilvray now works for Malama Maunalua in Hawaii Kai. This may tie in with the proposed appointment of Carlton Ching as Chairman of the DLNR, and thereby any future hires by the DLNR. These
are the kinds of things going on behind the scenes that the DLNR "Senior Communications Manager" does not want you to know about.
So, this is where we are.
