Brock Long, Head Of FEMA resigns due to a littany of improper spending, including nonofficial expenses for his family’s travel to Hawaii. While people in Puna were living in tents and surviving out of the Hub, your FEMA Director was on vacation using federal workers as his family’s personal servants:

The report also said Long used government resources in nonofficial capacities, including during a trip to Hawaii.

it cost taxpayers $94,000 in staff salary, $55,000 in travel expenditures and $2,000 in maintenance

$151,000 is nothing compared to the unnecessary "overhead" of Kim's emergency "management".

Yes.
County got money.
State got money.
Feds got money.
Displaced lower Puna residents got ono grinds at The Hub.

Provided through the generosity of volunteers, because Puna has long since learned to take care of itself.
