Dr. James Weatherford Announces His Candidacy for County Council District 5 Seat in 2010

I just noticed the following comment on Big Island Chronicle by Dr. James Weatherford:

OK.
I’m going to do it.
Trying to get something out of yesterday (after all, it was a long day and costly one for the taxpayer), I cite these two statements:

“People need to have different opportunities to serve.” J Yoshimoto
“I have just as much right as anybody else.” E Naeole

So, with that, I intend to be a candidate for the District 5 County Council seat.
After all, people need to have different opportunities to serve and I have just as much right as anybody else.

The few people I have talked with so far have been encouraging. One, whose opinion I have especial respect for, said, “YEP!” I should ‘come out’ now.

I happened to catch Dr. Weatherford a few months back at a zero waste meeting and this is what he had to say to the question “What does zero waste mean for Pahoa”.
