By News Release @ 3:43 PM :: 10017 Views :: Maui County, Education K-12, Energy, Environment, National News, Ethics

With the Gubernatorial race coming down to the wire, the Washington Post has just published a six page interview with Senator Dan Inouye in which he says absolutely nothing about Neil Abercrombie’s campaign.  Abercrombie beat Inouye’s favored candidate Mufi Hannemann in the September 18th Democratic Primary.  Is Inouye repeating the same strategy which places personal loyalty above party loyalty and was so helpful to the election of Republican Charles Djou in the May Special Election?

OHA driving Hawaiians out of Hawaii
By Andrew Walden @ 8:02 AM :: 24290 Views :: OHA

Hawaii Taxpayers On the Hook for $9 Billion--and Not for Rail
By Selected News Articles @ 3:26 PM :: 9615 Views :: Energy, Environment

Unwise financial planning, flawed incentives, and failed investments have left the pension fund far short of the resources it will need for long term operation. The Hawaii ERS is woefully underfunded by any standard.  The state government is obligated to pay its employees the benefits it has promised.
