Al Landon, president and CEO of the Bank of Hawaii, has asked Hawaii Gov. Linda Lingle not to veto legislation related to civil unions. "As a general rule, Bank of Hawaii does not take policy positions on issues not directly affecting the banking industry, although our employees are encouraged to express their individual views on issues," Mr. Landon said. "As an organization, Bank of Hawaii supports workforce diversity and fair treatment of all individuals. We have offered domestic-partner benefits since 1998."
