Politicians Should Keep Promises

Maui County Council needs to clean house and get back to basics.

It’s time for elections again. Why should tax dollars pay for redundancy and lack of accomplishment? To serve the people should be an honor, and the people deserve more.

Maui incumbent candidates are busy with their fundraisers, which are really mahalo parties with food, entertainment and door prizes.

In a letter to the editor, John Ornellas wondered what the difference is between 2008 and 2010 promises. What has been accomplished? The incumbents act like they don’t have to prove themselves like the newcomers. It’s thanks for your support and do it again!

What has been done that stands out? Her honor got a million-dollar office remodel. What a waste of tax dollars. A cell phone ban, and plastic bag ban—what about all the plastic that fills those bags?

Maui County Council needs to clean house and get back to basics. Their time is bombarded with administrative duties instead of focusing on their primary job: policymaking.
