Carroll talks about leftover contamination from an old incinerator next to the Kapalama Canal and Honolulu Community College, questioning what problems it will cause for the rail project and the proposed park along the canal.
Carroll then talks about election problems on the Waianae Coast, particularly how the StarAdvertiser is influencing the race for State Representative for District 44 by calling Cedric Gates's opponent, Marc Paaluhi, a "neophyte" even though he has Neighborhood Board Chairmanship experience, the same as Cedric Gates.
DeMotte Connor, a Nanakuli resident, tells Carroll there are some misleading
and false allegations being made about him, and the election process, on Gates's facebook page that should not be there, and he wants to defend himself. Gates calls in and claims Connor is spreading lies about him, and admits it is his brother Ben who is saying the bad things about Connor. Gates
and Connor debate the allegations, the facts, the lies, and campaign strategy. Gates is supported by Kymberly Pine, whom he has ties to and once did some work for. Carroll notes Pine had many problems with online postings and allegations during her past campaigns. Is Gates taking his cue from Pine's campaign strategy?
Carroll notes he is very concerned about the political process and what is the true test for any politician in this town, and this country. When do we start cleaning it up? Carroll says we need to research, talk about the elections, and be aware of what is really going on. We need good politics and good candidates who are not beholden to anyone
and are willing to work for the people. There are so many issues on the Waianae Coast that have been ignored or brushed aside for too long. Traffic, quality of life, jobs, and the environment all need to be addressed, and soon.
The second hour Carroll and callers talk about some of the issues, Charter amendments, and politicians not listening to the people.
