I can infer from state Rep. Mele Carroll's speech that she feels to "protect the integrity of the ohana" she must exclude part of it?
For the scores of patients alive and no longer with us whom she served, and to the thousands of taxpaying Hawaiian citizens she has abandoned, I can most likely speak in solidarity that we are thoroughly disappointed in her, even more so after her speech.
She has abandoned the people who trusted her and voted to have her represent their best interests.
Furthermore, she has abandoned the social contract with the people and, as a Democrat, abandoned the rock-solid civil rights principles of the party.
I, along with many others, will work diligently to have her unseated for her betrayal of our trust and belief in her desire to protect us.
