Monday Town Hall


I hope this finds you well on this sunny Tuesday I would like to invite you to an important community meeting I am hosting to give you the opportunity to speak with me or just listen about the recent decision I made to refrain from legislating until the county attorney can assure me that I am not committing war crimes.

This meeting stems from an announcement that I made on August 21st stating that I had come to understand that I may be in violation of my oath of office to uphold the U.S. Constitution and may be incurring criminal liability under both U.S. federal law and international law.

To ensure all of your questions will be answered my attorney who I worked with to draft the letter to our county attorney will also be present along with Dr. Keanu Sai. Dr. Sai, a Puna constituent, is a scholar and expert in international law as well as United States constitutional law. Heʻs been admitted as an expert in international law and the continued existence of the Hawaiian Kingdom in several criminal and civil court cases in the State of Hawai‘i. Dr. Sai is serving as the lead agent for the Hawaiian Kingdom in international arbitration proceedings before the Permanent Court of Arbitration at the Hague, Netherlands.

I want to be transparent in my reasoning and explain what prompted me to take this action so will be providing copies of the letter from the United Nations Human Rights Council, and other relevant handouts, and educate you on your status as a protected person. I would also like to share the work I have been doing to continue to represent and advocate on behalf of our district. Time will be reserved for your questions, feedback, and comments on this profoundly implicating topic. Snacks will be provided.

Date: Monday, September 24th

Time: 6pm to 7:30pm

Place: Kea`au Community Center (16-186 Pili Mua St.)

Hope to see you there.
