  1. Actually, this is the 3rd debate Billy has missed.
    He also missed the Kona Coffee Farmer’s debate, even though he was sign waving a few miles down the road twenty minutes before the start of the debate. I was wondering why he blew off the farmers, then I ran across this post on Hunter’s Blog from a Billy supporter. Well this explains it all, from Mr. T. Billy as Mayor…a done deal? He doesn’t need to go to any more debates? I don’t think so darlin’. More like he’s hiding.

    “Billy’s in the driver’s seat, I’d rather him focus on cabinet appointments and economic stimulus plans at this point. A debate is worthless at this point of the election – it’s over already, and a handful of people on a blog aren’t going to change that. Pilago will likely finish with 35-40% of the vote, and a debate between Mr. Pilago and a polished, well-educated Mr. Kenoi will not sway public opinion.”
