Hawaii’s state auditor is retiring
HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaii’s state auditor is retiring at the end of the year.
Marion Higa plans to retire Dec. 31 after 21 years on the job. She is midway through her current eight-year term and joined the auditor’s office almost 42 years ago.
The 70-year-old Higa said she is retiring to help her daughters with her two children while her son-in-law is in South Sudan to assist with democracy efforts there.
Higa says she hopes to do more traveling. One of her goals is to travel to North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska and Mississippi. Those are the only states Higa she has yet to visit.
