There is a better choice than speaker of the House

Cranston Kapoi is taking on a tough task of challenging Speaker of the House Joe Souki. It is definitely a David and Goliath type of story.

Voters should vote for Kapoi for a couple of reasons.

First, Souki has been there for well over 30 years and has lost his way. He supported the marriage bill even though an overwhelming majority of people were either against it or wanted a vote on it. Whether you think something is right or wrong is not the point. It is supposed to be government by the people.

Second, Kapoi does not have your typical political background, and that is a good thing. He did not go to law school and dream of being a politician. He is simply a Christian businessman who sees something wrong with the way the state is headed. He is just a carpenter building a better Maui.
