See other thread on Governor (Tupola
) and Lieuytenant Governor (Low
) - these choices are simple. A ratings from NRA.
City and County, none of the candidates look good.
However, the LEAST BAD seems to be HUSSEY.
I read these:https://www.civilbeat.org/2018/07/candidate-qa-honolulu-city-council-district-6-ikaika-hussey/
Links are on that webpage to the other candidates.
All of them are bad.
I had wanted to see if any candidate supported vacation rentals (e.g., AirBNB) because this is fundamental to property rights (you own property, you do what you want with it).
But they all reject it and want legislation to restrict usage by property owner.
On Sit/Lie, I wanted to see if anyone rejected it, and they all seem to do so but only Hussey specifically called it out as "cruel" and he also would "draft and support legislation requiring that all government documents be published automatically to the web, with “publicly viewable” as the default setting."
That is simple, direct, no-BS runaround talk.
He also seems skeptical about Rail but doesn't outright say it: "Rail, if designed and executed correctly to meet commuter needs, will help to lessen traffic."
STODDARD seemed "nice" with many great ideas, but he also seemed to be a bit naive and I am not sure if he is aggressive enough to get things done.
Only thing I am not sure about for HUSSEY is that he is Chair of this thing called Men's March Against Violence, which sounds a bit liberal ditzy. Could be wrong. I tried briefly to read about it but couldn't understand what it was really for.
