Chock, Evslin, Roversi deserve votes
I have worked with the following three individuals for over 20 years and know them to be upstanding citizens with a deep, passionate concern for the aina, the ocean, Hawaiian culture and the residents of Kauai. Please include them in your upcoming primary election vote to ensure that the following individuals had the opportunity to run in the general election:
Mason Chock, Luke Evslin, Adam Roversi.
You can register and vote this week Monday through Thursday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m at the Historic County Building annex, as well as in the primary this Saturday.
I have nothing negative to say about any of the others running for office, but I do know that these three individuals can be trusted to help provide your children the best possible future “quality of life” on Kauai.

Yukimura would be a good mayor
When we consider a candidate for mayor, we think of four factors. These four factors are: One — Experience, Two — Dedication, Three — Character, and Four — Views consistent with our own.
In considering these four factors we find:
JoAnn Yukimura has the most Kauai government experience of any other candidate. She has served on County Council a number of times and has served as our mayor in its period of greatest challenge. JoAnn was our mayor in 1992 when the category four hurricane hit Kauai. Iniki was the deadliest and the most costly hurricane to ever hit Hawaii. Army troops came in immediately and took initial charge of caring for the people and determining the damage. After this initial period, the Army turned to Mayor Yukimura to continue the work to assist and support the needs of the people. Following this turnover Army officials gave our mayor two letters of commendation.
JoAnn regards the position of mayor to be a fulltime job and it will be for her.
JoAnn reaches out to the people of Kauai and listens to all of their views. She strongly believes in and supports openness and welcomes those expressing “Truth to Power.”
• Views consistent with our own:
At least 80 percent of Kauai residents strongly support the current building height limitations of 30 feet for residential buildings and 50 feet for commercial. This limitation is the strongest help we have in keeping the spirit of Kauai.
Vote for who you feel is best, but please be sure to vote.
