True Grit

Thank you, Justin Hahn [“Votes, Lies and Videotape,” Oct. 17] and the Honolulu Weekly!

I hope my two children would have the moral fortitude to come forward and expose the underbelly of a corrupt organization as is PRP.

“HNLCSI” via [HonoluluWeekly.com]

John White and the rest of [PRP] should be so ashamed. Come on, Kirk Caldwell, denounce them. You won’t do it because you are in their pocketbook.

VOTE FOR BEN CAYETANO.

We need . . . a cheaper bus-only alternative so you don’t have to pay for Caldwell/PRP’s gravy train if you don’t want to.

The rail system is more designed to support tourists from the airport or Honolulu Harbor going to Aulani, Ko Olina and even more new Kapolei hotels (aka Waikiki Westside, oops, I mean “ transit oriented development”).

Good job exposing PRP for what they really are behind closed doors.

“Ledfingers 808” via [HonoluluWeekly.com]

Those PRP ads make it look like Kirk Caldwell and Dan Inouye are part of the PRP. IF those guys are not part of this questionable organization, they better speak up. All upstanding political figures should speak up–the same dirty tactics can be applied to you next time around.

Losing federal funding for rail is not justification to continue this worthless effort. Federal money is my money too, and I do not want it wasted . . .

“Local Haole” via [HonoluluWeekly.com]

You’re a good person, Justin, for exposing how big money still seems to waste taxpayers’ money by using words like investment, jobs, economic stimulation and progress to push their agenda forward! Who is held liable for the crooked politics in Hawaii’s Legislature, City Council? WHO?

“No Name Tagame” via [HonoluluWeekly.com]

[T]his article . . . seems to try to paint a picture of big business or rich developers trying to push the rail project through in order to reap huge paydays for themselves. PRP isn’t huge landowners or developers . . . PRP is local construction unions . . . local construction workers, working class, blue-collar Honolulu residents who need jobs.

Shem Lawlor Via [HonoluluWeekly.com]

Blue-collar residents willing to bankrupt the city just so they can have a temporary job is not acceptable to many of us! If you think rail will not be responsible for jeopardizing other infrastructure projects and/or raising property taxes, then you’d be suffering from delusional thoughts.

PRP = Pacific Resource Partnership. A partnership between the carpenters’ union, which is a big special interest unto itself, and a collection of major contracting firms. This is big business.

Justin Hahn Via [HonoluluWeekly.com]

Individual union dues are not to be spent to smear Ben Cayetano [w]ith almost $2 million in negative ads…and paying canvassers to shout down opposing views, hold signs or plant questions at rallies for pro-rails . . .

I just left PRP. The current campaign, Forward Progress, is gonna reach a neighborhood near you. They just did the Leeward side. They will now focus on town. Ignore them.
