I am writing in response to JoAnn Yukimura’s bid for mayor of Kauai. I am not surprised that she has thrown her hat in the ring but Ms. Yukimura needs to remember what she did to the people of the Westside after Hurricane Iniki. What I will share with you is not made-up stories, but facts. I worked for 42 years at the base and I seen with my own eyes and heard for myself what went on during that tragic time.
Many people approach me around the island at places like McDonald’s or at the grocery store with their concerns about public safety and other county-related issues on Kauai. These community members often praise me and wonder how I am able to do all of this work by myself. The short answer is, I do not do it alone.
