    It was a trip down memory lane today. Twenty-five years, I was a student at HCC. Taking courses through the Work Hawaii Program. Math and English before heading out to take Nursing School at KCC at the old Campus. Walking through campus and then to the cafeteria made me go back in time. Too bad I couldn't lose the weight too!

    The Forum was interesting and Fun.

    Romy of course the politician and experienced. Liliy and me we did well.

    We stuck to the issues. No name calling or bad politics were done.

    District Seven Candidates have Class!

    Love and ALOHA,

    It started the other day. An itchy throat and coughing. Yes...I was a victim of the VOG. Unlike others, I can't smell. Never the less, I the feel the effects too. And so I got worse. Fever, chills and green yucky galas. In my delirious state, I started to walk in the wee hours of the morning. Gasping for air and asking for more medication because I couldn't breathe. When the sun broke through, I was a bit better. PK told me to stay home. Never mind sign waving. Did I listen? Of course not. I'm stubborn. It's three days till Primary Saturday.

    I collapsed.

    Spending several hours getting examined, poked, and an EKG.

    The verdict. I need REST.

    I also told the doctor to re-check my foot. I felt an object was stuck in it. He injected my foot with Numbing Medicine but it was PAINFUL!! Nothing was there. He sent to have an X-ray....nothing was found.

    Damn ting is what it was diagnosed with the first time.

    Have a good day and don't forget to VOTE on SATURDAY!

    "Council member Romy Cachola continues to complain about potential noise and property value issues in his district. However, he is the council member who insisted the proposed route be shifted to his district and away from Pearl Harbor and Honolulu International Airport. The route can be shifted back, of course. THe Department of Defense and the airport would welcome an alternative to crowded parking lots and automobile gridlock."

    Once again, I remind you of his editorial in the StarBulletin on January 9, 2007.
    Stating how 122 residents sent in their approvals via Senator Sakamoto's survey. He himself said 70,000 - 80,000 live in the area. In his own own words "If this is not a strong indication of the community's sentiments, then I don't know what is." http://starbulletin.com/2007/01/09/e...mmentary2.html

    I KNOW WHAT IS!! 122 residents does NOT represent the COMMUNITY'S SENTIMENT!!!

    * Repealing my opponent's "Salt Lake Spur" segment of the rail transit route which most residents oppose as a noisy, expensive and unnecessary detour through their neighborhood.

    Thank you, Kani.

    This afternoon, was my last sign waving before the Primary.

    It was AWESOME!

    Neighbors, Campaign Manager and friends.

    Every corner and den some.

    People were yelling from their cars, trucks, SUVS.

    Just amazing.

    The excitement builds. Tomorrow is Primary Election Day. I entered this race knowing it was a long shot. And so I made sure I had FuN and learn. What I wasn't prepared for was the hate and ugliness I was to encounter. Politics get plenny Opala and Kakas. I no kid you. One has to be strong to survive the game. As a newbie, I learned on my own. Win or Lose...I wll help future new politicians the ropes on what to do and where to go.

    Mahalo.

    I voted at Kaiulani School. It was simple. When I saw my name on the ballot, I laughed out loud. Everything came back to me from the start on how it all began...I would do it again.

    You gotta have HEART. Make a difference in your community. You can't be afraid. Have Faith in God to lead you to your Destiny. Take the punches well with smiles and give KO's with thunderous blows!

    Cleaning my hale for the Primary Election gathering at my Hale tonight!

    Good work Aunty on raising awareness on issues during the campaign. You did a great job "first time out". By the next election, you'll have a ton of experience under your belt [under your hat?] and you can run again!
    Now run along and play, but don’t get into trouble.

    Awesome run, Aunty! Like Amati said, for the first run for office, you did a magnificent job. What I liked most, is you ran a clean campaign and maintained a positive attitude. It’s tough to compete against an incumbent like Romy when only 34% of registered voters show up to the polls. I heard one television reporter call it “the lowest turnout for a primary election in state history.”

    I also give credit to Lillian Hong. She managed to use the name recognition she achieved through her four previous bids for mayor, and her ’Ōlelo programming. Finally, I am disappointed with the state for their effort to educate voters about the importance of participating in the electoral process. It’s obviously a problem that is getting worse.

    We can’t be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans.

    Hi Aunty,
    Hey as Tutusue stated that was a great percentage of votes for your first run. I'm sure Romy is very surprised at the amount of votes that both you and Lililan Hong received and is already concerned about his next run.
    Congratulatons Lynn great job!!

    I went to the Unity Breakfast at the Ala Moana Hotel this morning. It was like being at the State Capital. Representatives, Senators as well as Board of Education Candidates were there. I was the only one from the City Council Race (defeated) who showed up. Even Council Member Romy Cachola neba show up.heheheh I did see Council Member Nestor Garcia.

    Everyone was upbeat. Winners and Losers smiling. I am in awe of the whole process from beginning to end. It's what we as Americans have the right to take part of. I took my dream and turned it into REALITY. Congresswoman Hirono spoke of her first time running for Political Office. "You always remember the FIRST!" Another said "You must lose first to know what is to WIN!" Several politicians came up to me and congratulated me. They told me their political stories about losing before winning.

    Will I run again? You betta believe it! In two years.

    I have no regrets. My campaign manager is the best ~ Matt Lum. You'll be hearing more of him.

    My dear husband, PK. What a man. Although he took a smash in the Stocks, he still SMILES. We'll make it through. We always do.

    Now to concentrate on "The Slippah Project 2009!"

    Fund raising starts in October!

    Love and ALOHA,
