Vote no on tax hikes and raises for politicians

Personally, I like Mayor Alan Arakawa and former Councilman Mike Molina. They were instrumental in getting a speed bump installed after seven years of fighting off Council Member Mike Victorino, former Public Works Director Milton Arakawa and former Mayor Charmaine Tavares.

They are now gone, except Victorino, who should be gone.

However, the budget is up 10 percent with big raises for the mayor, his honchos and the council.

Property taxes are up 9 percent for value and 6.5 percent to cover budget shortfalls.

Meanwhile, family income is down 10 percent.

Has the private sector seen any raises?

Vote and throw these bums out of office.
