It was more than his poise, sense of humor or his intelligence that was on display last night, Panos took the mayors race far beyond conventional local politics. And because of this he was the real winner last night.
Consider this, his campaign started only a couple of months before the primary and was underfunded from the beginning. What he lacked in time was compensated by his concise and powerful message. He set the stage and agenda for the mayors race. What he lacked in financial… Continue

Ok! I had this thought pass through my head today. I said to myself, what if I'm wrong on this whole rail issue and of giving my best effort to get Panos elected Mayor. Mufi should get a fair shake and a little consideration---right. After all if you exclude his political appointees and non-bid contractors there are people that would vote for him---right. So what would be a fair question to ask in this situation? So I thought how about this, What are Mufi' accomplishments as Mayor? I thought,… Continue

I hope you had a chance to read the article in the Advertiser this morning. It was fabulous and more importantly it may be the push that Dr. P needed to get his name registered on peoples "the things that interest me" list. I have to say it was great getting home from California yesterday and opening this mornings paper to see Panos and the write up that followed. If Mufi… Continue

I read through this blog and could not determine what was fact and what was fiction. There were several point made but a few really jumped out at me. A lot of questions were not answered and clearly, Alicia could have been much better informed. Let me address my concerns over this Hot Seat blog.
She talks about the Big Picture! Does anyone know what this Big Picture looks… Continue

I am so energized and delighted by this campaign and what it represents. I admit I'm biased in my view because of my engineering background. The rigors of the engineering discipline gives me a great appreciation for those who can handle the engineering math and course work in college (my friends who went to school as engineers will attest to this), and the level of intelligence one must possess to pursue an advanced degree in engineering let alone a PhD in the discipline is far… Continue

Please check out the Advertisers website and Cliff Slater on the Hot Seat. From what I read, it saddens me to see an obvious attempt to discredit Mr. Slater. It is clear that this was an organized attempt using various fronts to discredit and offend Mr. Slater and the concerned citizens that are part of the "Stop Rail Now" group. By association it's also an attempt to discredit any meaningful… Continue

Let me ask, what's in a question? To some people, asking questions is an art form that can take you along paths of discovery. So let me pose another question. What's wrong with Oahu? I bet the question brought to mind a number problems and issues. The question solicits a laundry list of negativity. I prefer a more positive mental exercise as well as positive solutions. So the question I prefer to ask is this, How can we make Oahu a better place to live? For starters, I can think of… Continue

I wonder if the folks in the mayor’s office have enough to do. With sewage spills and potholes, you would think they’ve got their hands full. Imagine adding rail to the mix.
