Hawaii has the most advanced form of self-governance ever created. We are the beneficiaries of this system. Our elected local leaders and representatives are required to work at the behest of “we the people.”
Recently, the majority of those elected have demonstrated that they no longer represent the people at large, but promote moneyed special interests.
Have you tried to engage any of your elected leaders or representatives lately? At best you probably received a written response thanking you for your feedback and assuring you that your concerns are taken seriously. The silence in acknowledging your alternative viewpoints, especially if they contradict their narrative, is part of their agenda to deceive.
This silence and dismissal of alternative viewpoints has frustrated many. This method is called propaganda — to only recognize and reinforce one side of an issue and never acknowledge or debate any opposing viewpoint.
Hawaii’s Democrats have built a mirage they call an economy, made of deceits and bright colors which, now exposed, is faded, tattered and oppressive, with increasing suffering.
This, they would tell you, is unavoidable, out of their control, or they may provide you with statistics to try and convince you that you should be happy with what you have, and this really is a healthy economy. For all of this, they expect your continued support.
Citizens of Hawaii, elections are quickly approaching. You have the responsibility to study, learn and openly discuss, debate and reason for yourself and with each other so that the best of our ideas and people are included in our self-governance.
I was encouraged to provide this information to you by an electric vehicle driver in Hilo.
I represent the company OpConnect that installs electric vehicle chargers on all the islands. I’m an electric vehicle driver myself and have been since 2014 when the first EV were available.
Even though I cover all the islands, my home base and residence is in Hilo. I know firsthand how frustrating it can be to try to charge an electric car on this side of the island. The few we have are either broken or not always available due to high demand and more vehicles than there are chargers to plug into.
In the heart of Hilo, the county building has four charging stations that have been out of service for years! I have approached, called and texted the county department for almost a year about replacing these chargers, at no expense to them, and they have not ever returned my phone call.
I went as far as showing up on their doorstep, and still nothing.
I’m not sure what it will take to get these replaced, but if free will not do it, then I’m at a loss as to what it will take. With Hawaii trying to encourage EV adoption and less reliance on oil, I’m discouraged, to say the least.
