State Rep. Jessica Wooley on Sunday sent an email to state senators offering to meet with them on her potentially troubled nomination as director of the state Office of Environmental Quality Control.
Wooley wrote that she had sent a similar email on April 4, but only three senators -- Sen. Suzanne Chun Oakland; Sen. Les Ihara; and Sen. Russell Ruderman -- responded and agreed to meet with her.
Wooley's Senate confirmation vote is scheduled for Tuesday.
I understand there may be questions about my qualifications and fitness to serve as the Director of the OEQC. If that is true, I am available to meet should you have the time and inclination.
Environmental activists from groups such as the Sierra Club Hawaii and Babes Against Biotech are mobilizing on Wooley's behalf.
