Les Kondo,, you da man!   I’m so inspired,, give him a bigger staff and funding and let him "go boy" .  With recent disclosures related to the ADC failure, OHA’s audit non compliance, HPD’s overtime/Covid recovery expenditures and the recent judgement on Maui for A&B’s (read: Maui Pono) continued water leases, not to mention the rail, Les has work for the milenium . These embarrassing issues qualify for yesterday’s trash. I’d say Les is on our side.

I would of covered the eyes of the donkey to protect the party’s identity and keep their anonymity. Hahaha!  Spot on topic for the cartoon. Saiki’s attempt to control Kondo is transparent, filled with holes, and as see through as a half inch fishing net. The failure to embrace accountability in government says what about government?
