Doesn't support Moriwaki as Bauer's successor
Published newspaper accounts and press releases report five Democratic candidates vie for retiring Kitsap North Commissioner Steve Bauer’s position. One of these candidates is Mr. C. Moriwaki of Bainbridge Island, a long-standing activist lobbyist for his special-interest agenda and $9 million Bainbridge monument.
During Mr. Moriwaki’s lobbyist-campaign, he secured vast sums of public monies, public-employee support and special access from COBI, Kitsap County, Olympia and D.C. For those unfamiliar with Mr. Moriwaki, a simple Google search will flesh out lobbying details.
The Washington Constitution places the final selection of Commissioner Bauer’s replacement with Kitsap County-elected Democratic Precinct Committee officers. However, the 240,000 citizens — the Democrat, Republican, Independent and non-political of Kitsap County — deserve an interim commissioner without ties of conflict or favoritism.
Kitsap’s 2010 November elections reveal a clarion call for fair leadership. An incontrovertible fact: character counts.
