Wife doesn’t think can­di­date can win

The Maui News - - OPINION -

My wife thinks I have no chance to be­come mayor. Like many dar­ing hus­bands, I plan to prove her wrong. I don’t know what the Las Ve­gas odds are.

My wife stands on some solid rea­sons. We’ve only had two haole may­ors (I’m haole) since state­hood and I’m a po­lit­i­cal out­sider. Yet, 697 vot­ers must have thought I had a chance to win in the last elec­tion as they cast their bal­lot for me. Per­haps they want a change as they are sick and tired of pol­i­tics as usual.

I’m hop­ing to cre­ate the ideal so­ci­ety of the fu­ture (see mauitopia.org) and show my wife that I can be right once in a blue moon.
