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

Thanks for voting down more taxes
At a recent council meeting 3 members voted to pass the excise tax that would just put more of a burden on our already overtaxed citizens. Thankfully 4 members voted it down so it didn't pass. Let me give you some glaring examples of why our taxes should not be raised in paradise. (Kaua'i)
When taxes that were earmarked for our roads over the years but were going to other sources.
When millions of dollars were being wasted on our bridges by not using the prefab type used over the Wailua River and other bridges on Kauai.
When we have factually spent a fortune on materials for our roads that we were not getting with no investigation.
When our multi-use path is costing us about 15 times more to build ( a road 20 feet wide one mile long about $350 thousand compared to a mile of path for $5.2 million with no oversight.
When our late Auditor, Ernie Pasion did eight outstanding audits that showed a lot of waste that has never been addressed, then why should we punish our already overburdened tax payers by asking them for MORE tax dollars? Find out where the waste is going and taxes will not have to be raised.
Yes, we should be getting more of our TAT tax from the state that we deserve. But we cannot keep using what we should have to balance our books as an excuse however use what we have and know we will have to stay in the black.
We desperately need a radical change of government operations from the one that is in place to solve our problems. Only going to a Manager style of government can give us that opportunity.
