Honolulu Civil Beat profiles Maui Time publisher Tommy Russo in a series dedicated to Hawaii residents “who aren’t afraid to make waves” in the community:
“I want to challenge the status quo,” Russo said … “I just didn’t realize that putting myself out there would be such a lonely place.”
Russo isn’t looking for pity. He’s just frustrated by the dishonesty and depravity he sees at the highest levels of government and business.
“We’re not in a sustainable society right now and I think we all know this,” he said. “If I’m not going to fight for change, then how can I expect anyone else in this community to do the same?”
