Okay, so #REALTALK: how many times have you been frustrated by our County Government (Hint happens to me often). And how many times have you wished that you could improve Hawaii Island for the future?
Let me fill you in on a little low-down dirty secret that most people don't realize: the real reason frustration with Government is actually happening is...some politicians get elected with no real skills, no idea how to lead, or manage cash flow or balance budgets or even craft a good law. They are full of passion and excitement but that's not enough, you need fiscal responsibility, leadership, you need someone to take the hard positions and ask the questions no one wants to answer.
In my work with the Hawaii County Council, I discovered this is not only to be true, but to be painfully, heart-wrenchingly, cramp-in-your calf--all-day-long kind of true. But the thing is, some of our elected leaders have no idea. Even if the ones who do have no idea how to fix it.
So-drum roll- this is exactly why I'm running for re-election to the Hawaii County Council, District 9 - and why I hope you'll join me as part of #TeamTim and write an endorsement of why you support me.
Together, we'll rock this vote, and Hawaii:
Design a sustainable tourism industry that provides balance for our communities...
Bring balance to our economy that provides green growth and a sustainable, secure future for our keiki...
We'll lead Hawaii back together, it's not me, it's we!
