As we approach the primary elections on August 11th, we are taking this opportunity to let you know our views regarding certain candidates who could be influential in bringing about the legislative changes that we are pursuing, should they be elected.
James Weatherford is running for County Council District 4, and Bradley Westervelt is running for CC District 6. Both these candidates have been active members of the HSCA board of directors since our formation, and both helped draft the Sustainable Habitat resolution, which passed CC in Oct 2011. James and Bradley are both heavily involved in efforts to secure an alternative building code, as well as a Sustainable Living Research act.
Dominic Yagong, who is running for County Mayor, fully supports our work for a new Sustainable and Affordable Habitat building code and is currently sponsoring our HSCA Sustainable Living Research resolution.
Russell Ruderman who is running for State Senate, has offered to champion our Sustainable Living Research Bill in Honolulu, should he get elected.
Zendo Kern, who is running for County Council District 5, has stated that his legislative priority is for an alternative building code.
These are the candidates who give us their support, and we recommend you give them your vote in the upcoming Primary Election on August 11th.
The election for the Hawaii County Prosecuting Attorney will be important in determining the County’s priorities for law enforcement. One candidate, Paul Dolan, presents himself as ‘A rural lawyer. A different choice’ and strongly supports the Peaceful Sky Ordinance, which makes marijuana the lowest law enforcement priority.
