Carvalho jr. said? Or was this mayor Caviao? I don’t remember Carvalho jr. the big guy, as mastery of details. All I knew was that he lifted weights, ran a lot, and worked out. Who told him to start thinking? The former football player, six foot-six inch man? That guy?
I have no reason to consult with him.
Actually, I only give him kids credit. You know, pop warner and KIF relations into the voting public. Medical plan.
Really. I’m not sure still though. To me, he called out “eleven” every time in a lineup. Too scary.
How did they vote? There is no company. Hokua place. Build or no build.
A review of history will reveal to anyone with a few active brain cells that central planning has always been, always will be, an abject failure. It has produced more misery and death than is comprehensible…literally 100s of millions of deaths through starvation and murder by the state. (USSR, China, N. Korea, Cuba, Cambodia, Venezuela etc. etc.)
All the talk of a General Plan is nothing short of centralized planning and it will fail. It is especially onerous when backed by the mob…sorry, I meant to say “community”. I must say though, that I am not exactly sure what is the “community” in this case. Perhaps in the mix of this so-called “community” are some of the same people that whine about affordable housing. They are under the delusion that restricting the supply of housing will somehow increase the supply of affordable units? Irrationality and economic illiteracy are at the helm here.
The type of development planned for Kapaa is not appropriate at this time. The roads just cannot handle all the traffic that 800 new homes will create, not to mention when they are building them, all of the mess they will create with construction traffic! Why don’t the Kauai engineers learn from the mistakes of California and Oahu? Look at how horrible it is in those places because of development. Money, money, money! We voted for council members to look out for out island, and they are selling us out to developers!
