Here is a question from an anonymous asker that I have sat on a couple days. I don’t like to do that but I needed to hear the word of God before addressing this question that is not about any issues. The Question is “Why is Neil Sorenson being such a creep and is it true that you are only running to get a permit to rent jet skis?
I don’t really want to spend a lot of time on the first part of the question because I don’t know why he is doing it. The folks from the other jobs I have done on Maui are all very supportive and proud of what I am doing. For whatever reason, some of my former co-workers at TSA seem to have issue with it and Mr. Sorenson seems to be the worst.
Again I have no idea why. I worked with him for years and we never had any trouble that I am aware of. What I do know is that he will have to answer to his maker for the sins he is committing against me. Since I am new to this campaign stuff, I did ask advisors what I should do and they just laughed. They said that this guy doesn’t even realize that by drawing all this attention to my campaign, he is actually helping me. They said that if he really didn’t want you to win he would divert attention from the campaign. So thanks for your help Neil.
Now for the second part of the question. It is true that I tried to do a jet ski watersports business but the permitting process was a nightmare. It has caps on the number of permits that it allows. When one becomes available, it goes up for auction and the highest bidder gets it. That makes it very unfair for those who are just starting up. I came across many people who went through the same hurdles.
I feel that local laws need to be changed to help small businesses rather than not let them get started. If all I cared about was jet ski rentals, I would run for a state position not a county one.
The fact is this. Anybody who knows me knows that I gave my life to Jesus two years ago and since then I look to him for guidance. One night I was praying, aka talking to God. I asked him what I should do about this and he put the idea in my head to run for County Council. I first thought, “Are you joking God? I am flat broke and I know nothing about running a campaign.” Then God communed with me to just put my name on the ballot and enter the race and the rest will take care of itself. I obey God because he always proves to me whenever I doubt him that he knows what he is doing.
So contrary to what you hear from Mr. Sorenson or anybody else, that is why I decided to run. That is why I laugh when he insists I drop out of the race. I will not disobey my savior. I am not sure if it is God’s plan for me to win, but I know why he wanted me to run. This experience has really been a blessing and the more I tell my story, the more people become aware of the corruption and greed that has ruled this island for far too long.
