Today was Kevin Dayton’s last day as a reporter for the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, according to a report earlier this week in Pacific Business News.
Dayton will be picking up where he left off with the administration of Big Island mayor Billy Kenoi.
According to PBN:
Dayton, who was the executive assistant to the Hawaii County mayor for about two-and-a-half years prior to joining the Star-Advertiser’s staff in October 2011, said he is returning to that job, although the title could be changed. His last day at the Star-Advertiser is Friday and he starts his new job on Monday.
“My wife and family are on the Big Island, and while I love journalism it has been a strain to go back and forth,” Dayton said.
