I just read the following from Chelsea Yagong, the daughter of Hawaii County Councilman Dominic Yagong (who is resigning his seat to run for the Hawaii County Mayor position the following):
It is official…today I filed papers to run for Hawaii County Council, District 1.
This is the perfect time to get involved with government. With all the technological advancements, more and more people are paying attention and holding their elected officials accountable. I would love to be in a position where I can effect positive change for our community.
It is also very important that we, the younger generation, step up to the plate and get involved with government. We need to be part of the process. All the decisions being made today, are effecting our tomorrow. Let’s be proactive, get educated and make a difference.
I would really appreciate your support in this up coming primary election, on August 11, Saturday. REMEMBER you must be a registered voter to participate in the election…I have attached a link to the voter registration forms. Please fill out the form and send it in by JULY 12!! That is the deadline to register to vote in the primary election.
If you have any questions, or would like to support my campaign…please feel free to give me a call at 808-333-0528, or email: email@example.com
