to change the county charter and restore sovereignty to every citizen.
Recent quotes from three of our own county council members on their positions as elected officials are revealing as to how they view their proper roles :
“it sometimes takes a law to change people's behavior”
"Sometimes I have to be forced to do things that are right and I don't want to.”
(I need) “to take charge, to lead our County, to define policy in the best interests of the people of our island. “
Frightening, isn't it !
Our county government lately has taken on 3 roles:
We the people have delegated out elected officials the power to be administrators, but we have NOT delegated them the power to restrict our lives and take our money without our permission.
The Consent of the Governed acts will restore forever this authority and sovereignty to the people of the Big Island.
