Mayor’s Executive Assistant Dayton leaves for newspaper position


Kevin Dayton, executive assistant to Mayor Billy Kenoi, has resigned from his county position to return to a newspaper reporting position with the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

Dayton, 51, served in the Kenoi administration for nearly three years. His responsibilities included communications and special projects.

Before joining the Kenoi administration, Dayton was a reporter and bureau chief for The Honolulu Advertiser for 16 years, and was a reporter for the Hawaii Tribune-Herald for four years.

“I would like to thank Mayor Kenoi for giving me an opportunity to develop new skills, to work with his excellent staff, and serve the mayor and the residents of the County of Hawaii for the past three years,” Dayton said.

“Kevin has been a valued member of our executive team, and he will be missed,” Mayor Kenoi said. “We all appreciate his many contributions to our administration, and we wish him success in his new job.”

Dayton begins working as the transportation reporter at the Honolulu Star-Advertiser on Tuesday, Oct. 25.
