County of Maui Recruiting Director and Deputy Director for new County Department of Agriculture

In November 2020, Maui County voters approved the establishment of a Department of Agriculture. Throughout 2021, an agricultural working group established by Mayor Michael Victorino set forth a draft of the new department’s mission, goals and objectives, and community meetings were held to get feedback on the direction and budget priorities of the new department. The Department of Agriculture will open on July 1, 2022. The County is recruiting a Director and Deputy Director of Agriculture. 

Prospective candidates should carefully evaluate the roles, responsibilities and qualifications for each position and apply only for the position that best matches their qualifications. Applications will be accepted until 4:30 p.m. on Monday, May 9, 2022. Both recruitment notices are posted at

“We encourage qualified candidates who are passionate and knowledgeable about agriculture to apply,” said Mayor Victorino. “The first director and deputy director will set the strategic direction for this important department. Agriculture is crucial for Maui County’s need to become more self-reliant both in terms of food security and as a pivotal economic sector.” 

Both positions will be appointed by Mayor Victorino, and the Director will need to be approved by the Maui County Council. For information about the appointment process or the powers, duties and functions of the department, please visit:
