Government

Maui County has a quasi-mayor-council form of municipal government. Unlike traditional municipal governments, the county government is established by the state legislature by statute and is not chartered. Executive authority is vested in the Mayor, elected by the voters on a non-partisan basis to a four-year term (with a limit of two consecutive full terms). Legislative authority is vested in the nine-member County Council. All seats in the County Council have residency requirements; however, all voters in Maui County may vote in elections for all nine seats regardless of residence. Members of the County Council are elected on a non-partisan basis to two-year terms (with a limit of five consecutive full terms).

In 1996, Maui County Council v. Thompson et al., 84 Haw. 105, was decided by the Hawai'i Supreme Court holding that the Maui County Charter had created a "strong council" / "weak mayor" form of governance and invalidating actions by former Mayor Linda Lingle hiring special outside counsel without County Council approval.

The current mayor of Maui County is Charmaine Tavares.

Maui County was the only county in the United States won by Dennis Kucinich during his unsuccessful campaign for the Democratic Party nomination to the presidency in 2004.[1]

Geography

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 2,399 square miles (6,213 km²), of which, 1,159 square miles (3,002 km²) of it is land and 1,240 square miles (3,210 km²) of it is water. The total area is 51.67% water.
