These results from yesterday’s primary election mostly set up final decisions to be made in the general elections on November 3. We will have seven Council decisions, as two spots have no opposition. But those seven County Councils races now have been reduced to just 2 candidates each. KCA plans to have two more candidate forums, 9/15 and 10/20, with each covering two council races. Thus our goal is to look and listen to candidates in five of the seven contested races. We hope another entity will cover the other two.
As for the state partisan contests like District 11 for State House; while it is not officially pau, most pundits doubt the Aloha Aina candidate will defeat the Democratic winner. But pundits have been wrong – check the White House. Better VOTE, no matter who you support! You are registered right?
If NOT and you blew the primary, do not compound the misstep.
