RE: GOV. MSG. NO. 712
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. 712, submitting for study and consideration the nomination of:
State Board of Barbering and Cosmetology
G.M. No. 712
for a term to expire 06-30-2020,
begs leave to report as follows:
Your Committee reviewed the personal history, resume, and statement submitted by Chad Nelson for service on the State Board of Barbering and Cosmetology.
Your Committee received testimony in support of the nomination for the reappointment of Chad Nelson from the Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs and three individuals.
Upon review of the testimony, your Committee finds that Mr. Nelson's knowledge, background, and proven experience on the State Board of Barbering and Cosmetology qualify him to be nominated for reappointment to the State Board of Barbering and Cosmetology as a public member. Your Committee notes that Mr. Nelson has been in the beauty industry for over ten years and has been the Regional Director for Fantastic Sams Hawaii since 2008, a position which has enabled him to gain a strong working knowledge of beauty culture and the beauty industry. Mr. Nelson also currently operates a beauty supply warehouse and is a partner of a salon management team and is dedicated to maintaining a high performance standard in all the salons he oversees. Your Committee further finds that Mr. Nelson has been a member of the State Board of Barbering and Cosmetology since July 2012 and his knowledge of the beauty industry has enabled him to contribute a valuable public member perspective to the Board and effectively advocate for consumer interests. Your Committee therefore recommends that Mr. Nelson be reappointed to the State Board of Barbering and Cosmetology based on his background, experience, and commitment 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,
ROSALYN H. BAKER, Chair
