QUOTE UNQUOTE: BEN VILLAFLOR

Ben Villaflor’s career as a professional boxer—he was world junior lightweight champion in the 1970s—prepared him well for the tough-guy role he plays as sergeant at arms of the Hawai‘i State Senate. For 36 years, he’s been responsible for maintaining decorum in the Senate chambers, where he enforces bans on eating, cell phones and placards. And when an unruly member of the public, or even of the Senate itself, is ejected from a meeting, it’s Villaflor who calmly but firmly walks him or her out the door.
