RE: GOV. MSG. NO. 592




Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi

President of the Senate

Twenty-Ninth State Legislature

Regular Session of 2018

State of Hawaii




Your Committee on Commerce, Consumer Protection, and Health, to which was referred Governor's Message No. 592, submitting for study and consideration the nomination of:


Real Estate Commission


G.M. No. 592


for a term to expire 06-30-2022,


begs leave to report as follows:


Your Committee reviewed the personal history, resume, and statement submitted by Sean Ginoza for service on the Real Estate Commission.


Your Committee received testimony in support of the nomination for the reappointment of Sean Ginoza from the Real Estate Commission, one member of the Hawaii County Council, and one individual.


Upon review of the testimony, your Committee finds that Mr. Ginoza's background, knowledge, and proven experience on the Real Estate Commission qualify him to be nominated for reappointment to the Real Estate Commission as a real estate broker member representing Hawaii County. Your Committee notes that Mr. Ginoza is a real estate broker with over ten years' experience in the real estate industry and is currently a Property Manager and Vice President with Ginoza Realty, Inc., in Hilo, Hawaii. Mr. Ginoza is also an active member of his profession and in his community, and is a member of the Hawaii Island REALTORS, Hawaii Island Chamber of Commerce, and Japanese Chamber of Commerce. Your Committee further finds that Mr. Ginoza has served on the Real Estate Commission since late 2016 and his experience as a real estate broker specializing in property management continues to be an asset to the Commission. Your Committee therefore recommends that Mr. Ginoza be reappointed to the Real Estate Commission based on his knowledge, experience, and dedication to public service.


As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Commerce, Consumer Protection, and Health that is attached to this report, your Committee, after full consideration of the background, experience, and qualifications of the nominee, has found the nominee to be qualified for the position to which nominated and recommends that the Senate advise and consent to the nomination.


Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Commerce, Consumer Protection, and Health,
