"Running for public office in 2012!..."

With the 2010 elections just around the corner excitement is at an all time low, I for one am not excited about any candidate. I am pushing for all the new people to create change, otherwise we have more of the same.

How many of these people running for public servants would be a council member, Governor,senator, congressman,or mayor without a salary, car allowance and health benefits?

If my health prevails I am thinking of running for county council in 2012. I am constantly criticizing government and like the old expression goes, "if you want a job done right, do it yourself."

The first thing our county and most cities need to do is privatize local government by contracting out to the private sector the jobs of fixing potholes and sewers, trimming trees, construction of and sidewalk repair, street cleaning and synchronizing traffic lights, just to mention a few.

Mayor Eva Galambos of Sandy Springs Georgia did exactly that. It was discovered that the private sector worked faster, cost the taxpayers less and had a 90% approval rating by it's residents. Imagine that the private sector working harder than government employees. She is being hailed a hero.

My first goal for the county of Kauai would be to privatize local government and use the city of Sandy Springs Georgia as a role model.

I look forward to the 2012 elections and look forward to many new faces this coming election. Remember the best way of change is to re-elect nobody, otherwise we have more of the same. Vote for the new people!
