TMT - Hawaii Owes You an Apology
Protestors You Can Leave the Mountain Now
Dear Governor Ige, December 8, 2019
In light of the long-awaited CLA audit of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs that reports fraudulent, abusive and wasteful expenditures in the amount totaling $7,762,064 dollars of taxpayers' money, I believe the taxpayers have just paid off their debt to OHA and its protestors (Full reports can be found on Hawai’i Free Press)
OHA and their beneficiaries were wanting $5 million for "their" part of the Mauna Kea access road. It would seem to me that the money they fraudulently stole from all the taxpayers more than compensates for their intense and selfish desires resulting in improper financial gain. And they have the audacity to say we owe them more money.
I am reaching out to you in hopes that you will now consider that the fraudulent actions of OHA and their beneficiaries will and without a doubt, open the door for our law enforcement and military personnel to step in if necessary, to physically remove the protestors from the mountain if so required.
And I am also respectfully requesting that you consider following in the foot-steps of former Governor Cayetano and consider abolishing the OHA organization all together. I don't believe I need to go into great detail as to why I'm reaching out to you with this plea.
At this point, it would seem to me that the protestors and OHA's beneficiaries need to look in the direction of their own trustees rather than blaming the taxpayers and TMT for all their wicked issues. Like I said in one of my prior public articles, "This is not everyone's kuleana" And it still isn't. So protestors may yell, "stolen lands, stolen lands" but it was ultimately them who were doing all the stealing.
Therefore; you are no longer in a position to sit back and do nothing. Please remove the protestors from the mountain and uphold the rules of the U.S. laws.
P.S. TMT, on behalf of those in Hawaii that did not support the protesting, we sincerely apologize for their ignorance. I understand that you can't possibly make up the time, money, and research lost due to unfounded highly charged emotions and poor communication, but I do hope that you know and understand that a great majority of Hawaii residents want you to stay and understand the importance of your contribution to our community. We would never take that for granted or be unappreciative like some people we know. Again, sincerest apologies from those that are in support of your project.
