"Pick me..!"

To make a long story short, The Kaua'i County council needs a replacement since one of the seven council-members left to be a state house representative leaving a local council seat open.

There is no special criteria, no special election. I submitted my resume and a brief letter which is enclosed as my blog for today.

The Kauai council will vote from among a list of people they feel qualify. Stay tuned!

Aloha Chairman Furfaro & Kaua'i County Council members,

I am interested in the upcoming vacancy on the Kauai' county council.I feel I represent the voice of many on the island...

I have been critical in many letters to the editor expressing my heart on subjects from the 'Super-ferry' to the plastic bag ban and points between.

Please consider me to replace Derek Kawakami on the Kauai County council.
