Letter: Waters better choice for City Council

Honolulu Star-Advertiser by Cynthia A. Josserand April 8, 2019

I do not always agree with the opinions expressed by David Shapiro and Lee Cataluna, but what I have in common with them is their stated opinion that Trevor Ozawa has shown poor judgment (“Wild attacks on high court could backfire on Trevor Ozawa,” Star-Advertiser, Volcanic Ash, Feb. 3; “Judging judges is a poor way to play,” Star-Advertiser, Lee Cataluna, Feb. 1).

I would go further and argue that he does not have the needed temperament to be on the Honolulu City Council.

I have been a constituent of Ozawa’s. We have never met, nor do I know Tommy Waters personally. However, in my phone calls and emails with Ozawa and his office, I have found him to be rude, dismissive and arrogant. It tells a lot about a man in how he treats mere constituents such as myself. The members of the Hawaii Supreme Court fared no better.

Blaming others when things do not go our way is not what we need in our leaders. I hope that the Star-Advertiser will reconsider and endorse Waters in the re-election. We need mature, thoughtful people to address the pressing issues of the city, not people who yell “unfair” when they don’t get their way.
