Honolulu County Council District 7 Candidate’s Campaign Manager Quits

I just got a text message from Former Campaign Manager of Honolulu Council Candidate Alyn L.A. “Lynn” Vasquez-DelaCerna of District 7, that he, Matt Lum, was quitting as her campaign manager, the official reason given to me, “I feel I can better serve Dela-Cerna’s campaign in other ways.”


I forgot to mention that Vasquez-DelaCerna has also been compared to Emily Naeole by one astute political observer.

…For example, look at , uh, “rough-around-the-edges” Councilmember Naeole of Hawaii County who managed to defeat incumbent Safarik in 2006. To be polite, I definitely see some similar mannerisms in Naeole and Vasquez-DelaCerna….

Disclaimer here… I know both Lum and Vasquez-DelaCerna personally and they are both honorable people.

*update* 8-29

Mr. Lum visited the Big Island last weekend and I was able to show him the volcano, red road, kalapana, etc. in his brief few hours that he had here.

During this time, he discussed that he was still contemplating coming  back to the campaign and he would know with in the week.  He hasn’t contacted me on the matter, however, judging from the comment just received by Candidate Vasques-DelaCerna, it appears as though he is back as the manager.

Politics…. don’t you just love it;)

    Damon – Hi Auntie Lynn,

    After I wrote the above post, Mr. Lum came over to the Big Island and discussed your campaign with me. I’m glad he has decided to stick with it and good luck against Romy.
