End Caldwell Crony Capitalism

Message to Supporters,  August 22, 2016

A major problem in any society comes when the rich and powerful take over all levers of government and use it to benefit themselves at the expense of the people.  The problem of crony capitalism in America is one of the main reasons national politics has gone haywire.

Here in our community, crony capitalism is in fully display in the mayor - Kirk Caldwell.

Charles is running precisely to improve the accountability in our local government in calling for an complete financial audit of the rail system and capping the amount this project takes from taxpayers.  He is running to improve the dismal quality of our local government by reforming the ethics commission.  Most of all, Charles is running to restore trust in Honolulu Hale by putting an end to the Caldwell crony capitalism that now pervades our local government.

But we will never see any improvement unless we find a way to win this election this fall.  We can do it, but only with your help.  This will be a long, hard, difficult fight against an entrenched status quo machine.  We look forward to standing shoulder-to-shoulder with you over the next two months to the General Election.  This election isn't about us, it is about the future of our entire community and the kind of Hawaii we want our children to live in.
