Mercury One Executive Director JP Decker joined Glenn on-air this week while on the ground in Maui. One of the major issues he discussed is the constant pressure from property developers to purchase the destroyed property from Lahaina residents.
Lahaina is one of the most historically significant towns in Hawaii, the former capital of the Hawaiian kingdom before the islands joined the United States in 1959. Not only does Glenn think property developers are preying upon the desperate situation of Lahaina residents following their unbelievable tragedy. He is concerned that the remains of the historic town will be turned into a strip of resorts and hotels, like other towns in the Hawaiian islands.

Through Mercury One, YOU have raised $1.1 MILLION for the Maui wildfire victims, which is on track to surpass the total FEMA funds allotted to the wildfire relief. Though no monetary amount can alleviate what the victims endured, but Mercury One is determined to stand alongside the victims for the long haul.
Glenn will have JP on his Glenn TV special TONIGHT to give us more details about the situation in Maui and how YOU can get involved. But first, Glenn wants to know what YOU think. Do you believe property developers should be allowed to approach the victims of Lahaina at this time? Do you think the state should protect the land from property development? Let us know in the poll below, and be sure to tune into the Glenn TV special TONIGHT on BlazeTV at 8:00 p.m. CT.
