The coming election for the new three members of the county council is one of the most important elections in the last few years. After attending two or three council meetings where the previous council voted for the Critical Area Ordinance we cannot support any members who are running now and voted for that ordinance. At those meetings, they did not seem to listen to their constituents and often treated the audience with disrespect...
We want to support people who have common sense and try to support all citizens of the islands. One group that has been left out is the middle class. These are people who are trying to work, have a home and raise their families. They can’t volunteer for committees and go to weekday meetings. They are working and are tired at the end of the day. Now many are paying increasingly higher taxes and have endless rules placed on them.
