Vote for Norma Doctor Sparks

There are some fine new candidates running for Council this year and some very good incumbents. But none of these candidates possess the amazing qualifications that Norma Doctor Sparks does.

Her experiences  would certainly qualify her for any governmental position in Hawaii and would make her a prime candidate for our County Council.

She was born in Koloa and her passion is to make Kaua'i a better place for all of to live. She wants to use her years of knowledge and experience to make this happen. She learned well from her parents, Bienvenido and Sofia Doctor, about helping others as they started the first nursing home in Hawaii in 1957 and ran it for 30 years.

Needless to say that the people of Kauai would be fortunate and honored to have this brilliant local woman with all this ability being one of their 7 council members. Think of our budget continually exploding and how she could help manage it WITHOUT RAISING TAXES!
