Zuckerburg project deserves consideration
It was interesting to look at Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan’s plans for their home and agricultural building in Kauai.
I am writing to encourage the county planners and community at large to support this project.
As a resident of Menlo Park, I have seen how dedicated this family is to supporting the community of Menlo Park and the San Francisco Bay Area. They have made generous contributions to our schools and donated millions of dollars to San Francisco General hospital, now called Priscilla Chan Mark Zuckerberg San Francisco General hospital. They have offered an ambitious plan to improve the adjacent streets around Facebook with new traffic plans, shops, and housing.
Having this family involved in your community will be a win/win experience for the Kauai citizens.

Military responds to request
I realize that your response was to support Ms. Yukimura but you failed to comprehend that I was on PMRF and SAW with my own eyes what went on. While yes the military did come down they did not take over the island and proclaim martial law. This would have allowed them to do all the things that they wanted to do without needing our mayor’s approval and acceptance.
A good example to prove my point, this past week Kauai went through a horrible flood due to the weather and the military came. Why? Because our major today asked for help.
Ms.Davis, you grew up on Oahu and at the time of the hurricane you were only 19? Where you living on the west side so that you could experience what she did to the people there? Saying you’re not a new comer is not the point and it has nothing to do with this issue. Listing your families history is to prove what? That they held positions of status and ran companies that controlled the state? But that again proves my point on who you are and why you stood up for Ms. Yukimura.
Oh and Ms.Davis just in case you didn’t know the definition of Martial law is the imposition of direct military control of normal civilian functions of government, especially in response to a temporary emergency such as invasion or major disaster, or in an occupied territory, which never happened on Kauai!
