I Got Angry

Jonathan L.

Honolulu, HI



Posted on 10 Jun

In a nutshell, I got angry. It was due to the obvious corrupting influence of big money over our elections in Hawaii. I began attending a monthly series of informative meetups featuring folks who had been paying attention to the legislative process and the ethics (or lack thereof) of our politicians. These meetups. called "Democracy Under the Influence (of money, aka DUI) were organized in part by Common Cause Hawaii. When those ended, I wanted to contribute to Common Cause with my time since I can't afford much financially. Also, I was particularly impressed by the upcoming generation of young people who were determined to try to take back our democratic process locally, including the smart (and incidentally, really good looking!) executive director of Common Cause Hawaii. I figured, if not me, who? I was also motivated by my involvement in elections as a Voter Assistance Official at our polling sites. I noticed a very large frustration on the part of (especially) young voters with the difficulty of registering to vote and getting informed so as to make carefully considered choices rather than basing their votes on name recognition, which was obviously influenced by the money spent on political advertising blitzes. I have time (compared to many) and I want to invest it in local action. I feel like it is time well spent in making the place I live a better place for the regular people.
