Mayor touts 10 years of accomplishments

In his State of the County Address Thursday, Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr. highlighted several accomplishment during his administration.

With great enthusiasm, he said:

w We said we would create Safe Routes to School — and we did.

w We said we would create an electric vehicle fleet with charging stations — and we did.

w We said we would create additional dedicated parking at Hanalei Blackpot — and we did.

w We said we’d create an agricultural park in Kilauea — and we did.

w We said we’d build bus shelters for our county bus stops — and we did.

w We said we would improve Kekaha Gardens Kaleimanu Park — and we did.

w We said we would create affordable housing opportunities — and we did.

And I’m saving the best example for last …

w We said we would build an on-island treatment center for our keiki to heal at home, together with their families. And with the vision of Mayor Bryan Baptiste, and the leadership of our elected officials coupled with the passion of our community, we broke ground on this facility in January! And we will build it!

    Trust a man who’s entire family stole county gas. Where’s the 1 million dollars that went missing? 2 county audits by a nonbias third party found kauai county corruption and felony theft by many employees who wasn’t charged for taking sick or leave days. 10 years and the budget on Kauai has almost tripled and staff has more than doubled while nothing meaningful has been accomplished. Good riddance

    How about trying to have the police commission get Kauai a police chief that actually wants to serve the people of Kauai?

    The present chief has tried 3 times to leave, twice for HPD and once for council, think its about time that we have a chief that really desires the job and will make a difference.
