– January 20 Hawaii Legislative Session Opens
HIRA’s exposure of Saiki and R/H/L corruption shows that HRP needs cleansing. Fearful R legislators are as culpable as the State Cmte is incompetent.
Readers’ Comments – Party News – Quick Hits
–I don’t necessarily agree with ALL our readers. “Oh my. Why can’t HRP fight against Democrats instead of causing all this infighting?” “As long as laziness reigns at the Hawaii GOP, so long as flimsy, weak candidates are worshipped, then the Hawaii GOP will be perpetual strangers to victory and dilettantes in political power.“ “It’s idiotic that Saiki as a former chair puts out an eblast to members praising Gabbard for returning contributions. You NEVER praise people for doing late what they should have done in the first place. What the hell is going on at HQ?“ “When HIRA waves their red flag, there is truth behind it.“ “Fritz wanted to scare off HIRA for sharing the truth.“ “My posts on the HRP fb page has put their nose out of joint and I am now blocked by them.“ “Mark Moses at the State Committee meeting mentioned the (HRP) website not working. Half the links on the GOP Hawaii page are under construction or just don’t work, which presents a very unprofessional image.“
–State Committee Meeting. Postponed from October. Agenda only 48 hours prior, 1/14 Exec reports, two Exec Cmte elections scheduled without party notification. The strategic & finance plan are to be presented, postponed from the required June deadline. Ready says he again missed the Rules deadline to provide past minutes, at the rescheduled meeting they’re four months late.
Saiki successfully boosts attendance to support her Treasurer candidate. Many districts remain empty, 28/51 districts (55%) were represented. Only 7/16 NI chairs (44%).
