Olelo “As our voices shrink, so does transparency from CEO/President Roy Amemiya

Lack of transparency and Public accountability continues at Olelo Community Television. Why is it the Public is kept in the dark about operations, contract, budgets and the handling of the peoples Public Access?? And since when do our government or agencies operate from opinions?

We have requested and asked again the President and CEO of Olelo Roy Amemiya for documents,the DCCA and Roy Amemiya continue to claim Olelo is exempt from providing and documents under the Office of Information Practices (OIP) and the sunshine laws. Yet they have a contract with DDCA a government agency, to provide services to Government. 

No documents were given or offered, read for yourself  the response from Olelo for the email we sent to Roy Amemiya on Friday Sept 21 after the Waipahu Kahea meeting on Weds. Sept. 19, 2012, requesting  under public interest and disclosure for documents, I respectfully made this formal request to Roy Amemiya for copies of the following:

 Letter of Opinion from the Attorney General, in regards to the State of Hawaii and City of Honolulu exemptions from billing by Olelo for Olelo's Services, and or channels, feeds or equipment.

Court Documents, Judgments, or the Letters showing Olelo's exemption from Public Disclosure of Records. 

Read the original concern with Olelo charging $50.00 fee for service to producers and community but not to government, they claim they can't charge the City or State, but Glenn Booth of Capital TV sits happy with a contract to provide services to our government.
