CONSENT of the GOVERNED PROJECT

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:

  • Administrative (such as determining how many police to hire, or where a road should go, or how to process garbage). This is an appropriate level of authority and responsibility for them to play.
  • Telling us what things we CAN NOT do i.e.:restricting our rights, more so every year
  • Taking our money: i.e.: taxes and fees

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.

Senator John CArroll

John Carroll first came to Hawaii as a merchant seaman in 1948 after graduating from high school, and became a student at the University of Hawaii in 1949. He played football under coach Tom Kaulukukui, and earned a BA in Education and a teaching credential, and did graduate work in Far Eastern Studies. He joined the army in 1952 and served in the Korean War. He later changed services to the Air force, eventually becoming a fighter pilot in the F-102 Delta Dagger, and attended the Air Command and Staff College and the Air War College. While serving, he attended St. Mary’s University College of Law in San Antonio, earning a Doctor of Jurisprudence Degree and transferred to the Texas Air National Guard. After returning home to Hawaii, he transferred to the Hawaii Air National Guard and became the Joint Staff Judge Advocate for both the Army and the Air National Guard.  He retired from the USAF/ANG with the rank of Colonel in 1985.

In the private sector, Mr. Carroll was a commercial pilot with Hawaiian Airlines until 1989, a member of the pilot's union for 30+ years, and was the founding Chairman of the Board of Hawaii Aviation Contract Services, the company which provides pilots to Japan Airlines (JAL) and Japan Air Charter, JAL’s subsidiary. They currently employ 150 pilots.

Mr. Carroll entered politics, running unsuccessfully as a Republican for US House of Representatives, but then successfully for the Hawaii State House of Representatives serving four terms in the state house 1970-78, and then one term in the Hawaii State Senate. As a State Senator Carroll authored several bills including the State's Code of Military Justice, for which he received the Air Force Commendation Medal. He also was elected Hawaii State Republican Party Chairman 1980-82.

Mr. Carroll continues to practice law since 1965, with offices on the Big Island and in Honolulu. Together with attorney Christopher Dias, he filed a federal lawsuit challenging the Jones Act as unconstitutional, which was rejected in December 2009 by District Judge David Ezra.

Mr. Carroll has family on 4 Hawaiian Islands, 11 grand children and 5 great-grand-children, all of whom have Hawaiian blood. He is currently seeking the Republican nomination for Governor of the State of Ha
waii.
