We hate having our options shoved down our throat
by Larry Geller
Oahu and Kauai do have something in common. It seems that both communities are uncomfortable with transportation decisions being foisted upon them by politicians.
The Garden Island newspaper reported today on a meeting at which:
The 19 council candidates and four mayoral candidates in attendance showed unanimous opposition to the Hawaii Superferry’s return to Kaua‘i without an independent environmental impact statement first. [Candidates oppose Superferry return, 8/6/2008]
Let’s examine for a moment the word “independent.” Could that portend further resistance if the EIS now being conducted by the state’s usual contractor is felt to be less than independent?
I'm a little bit surprised the candidates here unanimously took strong positions against HSF on Kauai before an independent EIS. It can hardly be said anymore that this is a 'vocal minority'.
