Democracy Can Work?

Not many people participated in the primary elections this month – in fact it was a pretty bad turn out. Democracy can not work if people don’t participate, the corporations will rule the day.

However, I wanted to say mahalo nui loa to those who did vote and especially those who voted for Chris Hart for mayor. He came in first place in the Mana`e precinct, second in the Ho`olehua precinct and third in the Kaunakakai and Maunaloa precincts. Molokai was ready for change, but Maui decided to pick the same old guys. Again, mahalo to all those who heeded the call for political unity in support of Chris Hart, I hope more of you participate in the general elections.
