From Nai Aupuni
MAUI CANDIDATE SCOTT PARKER:
Maui voters, please be informed that Maui candidate Dr. Scott Parker has withdrawn as a candidate. Thus, if you vote for Dr. Parker that vote will not count. Dr. Parker in good faith attempted to withdraw as a candidate before the ballots were printed, but through no fault of his, neither Election-American nor Naʻi Aupuni got back to him in time. Naʻi Aupuni apologizes for this situation. Mahalo.
OAHU CANDIDATE LOUIS AGARD, JR.:
Naʻi Aupuni is saddened to report that Oahu delegate candidate Louis Agard, Jr., affectionately known as Uncle Buzzy, has passed away, and we extend our condolences to his ʻohana and friends. Naʻi Aupuni was unable to remove Mr. Agard from the ballot and thus we wanted the voters to know that if you vote for him that vote will not count.
MOLOKAI CANDIDATE WALTER RITTE, JR.:
Although Walter Ritte has publicly announced that he is withdrawing as a delegate candidate he has not officially provided notice to Election-America or Naʻi Aupuni that he is withdrawing from the election. Thus, Mr. Ritte’s name remains on the Molokai ballot and votes cast for him will count toward his candidacy.
