Last but not least Glenn would really like to see Kaua'i give the county manager style of Government a chance.

My good friend, fellow blogger and
opinion writer Mr. Glenn Mickens was
recently harshly criticized by a fellow
opinion writer in the Garden island news.
Enclosed is the link to the Letter that appeared in The Kaua'i Garden Island news.
This blog is Glenn's response to that Letter. Dakinetalk backs our friend Mr.
Mickens in the Aloha spirit and as a county watchdog and thanks him for caring and doing all he does pro bono from his heart because he cares for the people and aina (land) of Kauai!
Mayor, County Council and KPD Chief, I appreciate you~Aaron K. Ellegard,Sr.

His presumption that I have no respect for our administration, Council, Chief Perry and his staff as well as all state and county employees is completely false.
I ask that Mr Ellegard call Chief Perry or any of his officers and find out what
kind of respect they believe I have for him and all those other officers who
Call our council members and even with some of our disagreements see how many of them respect me and my fellow government "watchdogs" for our testimonies.
Call our State DOT ( Larry Dill or Ray McCormick) and see what they think of my opinions and the means by which I try and correct what is wrong.
I believe that he will find that they all respect my 20 years of involvement and opinions even if we do not agree. With no other interest or motive in mind, I and my watchdog friends only want what is best for Kauai and all its citizens. And, many of those friends are "locals" just as you are.
Please don't feel sorry for me, Mr. Ellegard, because I really do have a wonderful life including a wife and family, live in one of most beautiful places on planet earth, had the opportunity to play professional baseball and to coach in my late years.
