What's with this getting a loan from a developer instead of a bank? Sounds kind of fishy to me and everyone else; perhaps some favors down the line? Or is it to repay a past debt.

Hey Wayne, if this was 25 years ago, you would be hollering as loud as anyone if another councilman was in your situation. That's why people think politics corrupt.

Agree with that. Nishiki was very outspoken in the past against this kind of behavior. Really bad taking a loan from someone who might be seeking county council approval for a project.
I wonder what his "interest rate" is on the "loan" from the developer.

The people who are behind this are people up on Felony drug charges (Michael Covich), Dave Deleon (A lobbyist for the Maui Realtors), and a woman named Pamela Tumpap, who is Joe Bradleys, of the Maui News, attack dog.
He filed a paper late. So did his opponent. So did two other Council members.

Don't forget Mackwell is part of the Kihei Community Association. This is a group of people who are either realtors or really old people who complain about Maui's resorts not being as good as the ones in Florida. I know, I've been to their meetings. The KCA also contains a couple perverts, one who advocates the drinking of urine (Joseph Bean, I'm looking at you). These people are mad at Nishiki because he didn't go to one of their meetings.

We are in the middle of an economic crisis. We need to move on and tackle issues that are relevant.

All you people should get a life and mind your own business. This forum is filled with ignorant people who don't understand County politics. Wayne will be able to participate in full discussion of all business. If he recuses himself for a vote on a Dowling project it is counted as a "NO" vote! A recused vote is a "NO" vote! So all you so called concerned Kihei people-if you really want him to vote no on a Dowling project that is what you get, undoubtedly that is not your concern or you would stop your whining. You can also count on the usual five votes for all developments so what do you have to complain about? Wayne, Sol, and Joanne are a minority vote on council and therefore you have nothing to complain about. Tell me one thing he won't be able to do that you want done concerning "representing South Maui," that's right you got nothing! We all know it is just a bunch of poor loser haoles who don't know how to mind their business and move on. Go back to Floriduh and rest in peace in your Disney development!

Nishiki is a crazy old man! He is the sell out to the Haoles and stone walls everything.

He has 3 DUI's, no money and is as unorganized as a pig (sorry pigs).

YET he still gets in because he claims he "can't be bought by developers1" -$100K says you can.

Impeach yes! I can't believe this guy won.

Joe local is an idiot. The other five council members would fast-track anything. Nishiki didn't "stonewall" anything, he asked questions and used the process -the way the other Council members should, but don't. He has had 2 DUIs. How many do you have? How many does the rest of the council have?
You can't say he's been bought by developers in the same paragraph where you say he has stonewalled everything. Which one is it? Does he say "no" to everything, or "yes" to everything? Your logic is poor, just like your grammar. In fact, the haole people are the ones behind the so-called impeachment. A pot-growing Haole, a real-estate Haole, another real-estate haole and a really fat haole. Learn your facts, jack.

Sorry - my facts are corrected ONLY 2 DUIs!!! That makes him an ideal Council Member.

As far as the other council members with DUI, check it out yourself - LAZY complainer!

Nishiki can't allow any development when he is front of the camera, BUT when he is alone -$100K says he can!

I ain't haole, I type like this cuz I can, and I can say all Paia people are haole hippies cuz its true!
