HT still not OK

Apparently, Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle–fresh off the John McCain campaign trail, where she made a name for herself ridiculing Barack Obama’s Hawaii roots–is also taking an interest in Hawaiian Telcom’s troubles: “Our Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs, the Consumer Advocate and the Public Utilities Commission has been closely monitoring the company’s financial circumstances and correspondingly has been informed of the company’s hopes to restructure in an effort to make Hawaiian Telcom financially stronger,” Lingle said today in an official statement, according to this Honolulu Advertiser story.

So now Lingle is interested in HT’s troubles? How about two years ago, when rotten customer service were infuriating customers that the state Public Utilities Commission felt compelled to start an investigation?
