Upcountry gets skate park and Lanai doesn’t

All about votes. Money for the Upcountry skate park (The Maui News, March 2) was earmarked for Lanai — no skate park here. However, there are more voters on Maui than Lanai. So, they took our money and gave it to Maui to make politicians look good and say, “Look what we did for you.”

If it wasn’t for Larry Ellison, this island would have nothing. Thanks for nothing, Maui County Council.
