Senator J. Kalani English Excited to Work with New Lana'i Ownership

Honolulu- It was announced today that the planned sale of Lana'i's assets by David H. Murdock's Castle & Cooke, Inc. to an entity privately owned by Lawrence J. Ellison has been completed. Castle & Cooke has owned more than ninety-seven percent of the island since 1985.

"The island of Lana'i holds a very special and vital role in our State's cultural, environmental and economic ecosystem," said Senator J. Kalani English (District 6- Hana, East and Upcountry Maui, Molokai, Lanai, and Kahoolawe). "I am excited to work with the new ownership to help build a better and more prosperous Lana'i."

Senator J. Kalani English currently represents the island of Lanai under Senatorial District 6- Hana, East and Upcountry Maui, Molokai, Lanai, and Kahoolawe. He also represented Lana'i as a Councilman from 1997- 2000.
