April 08, 2018, Honolulu, Hawaii.
Carroll's guest is John Carroll, running for Governor of Hawaii. Eric Ryan, President of Hawaii Republican Action, also joins in. John discusses his experience, his leadership skills, and the background he brings to the table that will give the state what it needs to get the job done. Some of John Carroll's issues and concerns are: 1) stopping rail at the stadium; 2) replacing the Department of Education with a central committee, and using DOE funds for school-based solutions; 3) revitalizing agriculture and pushing development of Hawaiian Homelands for agriculture and housing; 4) developing more bike paths across the island; 5) the Jones Act; 6) the cost of living; 7) the super ferry; 8) domestic violence, child support and our kupuna and 9) putting prisoners to work. He also wants to audit the government, going back to 2005, to see where all the money has gone.
Carroll notes, we cannot rely on our government to be truthful. John tells us he will have an open phone line and website so all can participate and see what is going on in our government.
Carroll, John, Eric, and callers chat about the issues.
Regarding the environment, Carroll Cox notes he recently received pictures of leachate at the Keehi Transfer Station. This is a continuing problem he has reported to the Department of Health (see below). Once again, nothing is getting done.

LEACHATE ON THE LOOSE
The Hawaii State Department of Health continues to ignore our complaint on the illegal practices by the City and County of Honolulu at its
Keehi Transfer Station located on Middle Street in Kalihi on the Island
of Oahu, Hawaii.
For more than two years we have complained to
the State of Hawaii about the city’s practice of loading its trash
trucks at the Keehi Transfer Station and allowing the wastewater or
leachate to drain into state waters (Keehi stream, Keehi Lagoon and the
Pacific Ocean) via the stormwater drainage system located on the
grounds of the Keehi Transfer Station.
Our complaints have been ignored.
recent letter received from an anonymous source seems to suggest that
the violation has gotten worse. The anonymous source also included
photographs of an unknown green chemical allegedly leaking from one of the city’s trash trucks. We are concerned Governor Ige had a hands-off approach to violations under Mayor Caldwell's administration. We are also concerned about Mayor Caldwell's political endorsement of Ige for his second term.

(Note: Pictures of green leachate were sent anonymously to Carroll Cox)

Link here to see Carroll's video regarding leachate from refuse trucks leaking onto our streets, and into Keehi Lagoon from the Keehi Transfer Station, where he exposes the illegal discharge and improper treatment of leachate, or wastewater, at the city's Municipal Solid and Hazardous Waste Transfer Station, its subsequent cover-up, and the State of Hawaii Department of Health's refusal to take enforcement action against the City and County of Honolulu.
