Vote to keep two-year council terms!

September 27, 2012
Bob Babson - Kihei Automotive , The Maui Weekly

The very essence of Democracy is accountability. Elected officials who know they will be held accountable every two years are much more likely to listen to and be in tune with the voters than if they know they will only be held accountable every four years.

When our founding fathers wrote the Constitution and created the House of Representatives, they gave each representative a two-year term for a good reason.

We should keep the Maui County Council members' term at two years. To preserve Democracy in Maui, please vote "no" on Charter Amendment 1.
