  1. So happy you are on top of this major problem. We are all fed up with Waianae being used as a dump for all of Oahu. None of the people of the South Coast think of us with any respect.
    I am also very in favor of equal rights for gay couples. Please vote for the right to marry law. It was not that many years ago that woman had even less rights than gays have today. I know, as I was there before the glass ceiling was broken. Equal Rights for ALL people is what is needed for ALL people to remember. It really is already the law, but some don’t think about it meaning ALL peoples rights
