A WHILE AGO LINGLE ACCUSED MIZUNO OF SAYING SHE HIRES HER CRONIES FOR GOV CONTRACTS AND THATS WHY SHE WANTS TO PRIVATIZE> I WAS THERE HE SAID NOTHING TO ACCUSE LINGLE OF ANYTHING
WHILE WHINING THAT MIZUNO WAS SMEARING HER GOOD NAME< SHE HAPPILY TRIED TO SMEAR HIS IN ALL OF THE PRESS> WHAT A HYPOCRITE> TYPICAL>
GET THE FACTS STRAIGHT I WAS THERE> REP MIZUNO WAS EXPLAINING A POLITICAL STRATEGY NOT ACCUSING LINGLE OF ANYTHING> ME THINKS SHE DOTH PROTEST TOO MUCH>
SO HERES MY ANSWER TO THAT:
To Whom it may concern
Art no time during the March 19th 2010 meeting on Kauai did Representative Mizuno make reference to the fact that the Governor, Linda Lingle was giving contracts to her friends or campaign contributers. Representative Mizuno's statements were for some reason taken completely out of context.
I was sitting in the very front row, there ws a microphone, it was a relatively small room, and I heard nim clearly.
What the representative was doing, however was describing a political process and strategy used by some elected officials and lawmakers. HE was describing how contracts can be awarded sometimes to friends, colleagues associates and campaign contributers.
However he never connected the Givernors name, nor insinuated that this was what she personally was doing.
I am writing this in order to clear Representative Mizuno of any offense, or offensive speech. He came to Kauai to communicate with us, take our concerns and our testimony and we applaud him for this.
This meeting was not about the Governor, although it was about the policies of her administration and her department heads and how the people felt about how their lives were going to be affected by those policies.
They took the time to fly all the way to Kauai to actually listen to us. I hope you will do the same for me. I can attest that what I heard at that meeting was not what has been stated.
