Sorry I know I ask a lot of questions but could we recall Caldwell? I think there are A LOT of businesses owners and normal citizens that would sign a petition.

We should sue. For a guy that makes $300,000 a year in a part time job, perhaps his attention isn't there as a mayor. Poor decision making due to ineptedness
He looks like he gets his hair did like Pelosi.

Nope.  For two reasons.

(1)  He's not on the November 2020 ballot for Mayor, for the simple reason he's ineligible.  Can't run for a 3rd term.

(2)  He's within 1 year of the end of his term. "The end of a term" usually signals an election is being held just before it.  A recall would require a recall election to fill the vacancy should the recall succeed.  Why force a recall election just to then have a normal election in the same timeframe?

Well he deserves to be remembered as a recalled mayor. He's corrupt bought out by PRP and he's ruining Honolulu's economy.

Who told you that?

That's only true for state level offices.

Recall exists for each county.

Read paragraph 2.:

The 2017 revision is a searchable PDF.  Much better than the scanned image of the old version.   :thumbsup:



Here's the page where the PDF link was posted.  They call the current Charter "1973".  That's confusing, since it was revised in 2017.  I guess that number is just the revision number, not the year.

Democrat mayor of Nashville, TN. Over/under on Caldwell withholding information?
