This was a great weekend for meeting candidates for the 2018 election as Gov. David Ige paid a visit to Kauai, making a stop for breakfast at Tip Top while everyone else (more than 1,200 participants!) was treading Ke Ala Hele Makalae at the 10th running of the Kauai Mayor-a-thon (kudos to Bev Brody, Lee Steinmetz — Noreen Steinmetz won one of the bicycles! — and her great committee, including Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr. on 10 great events!).
