Name: Dennis Fowler

What are the biggest issue in your district and your proposed solutions? The most important issue is the County Manager initiative which needs to be brought to the people of Kauai for a vote


What is your position on county taxes and fees? Are they high enough or should they continue to increase? County taxes and fees are definitely high enough – there is no way they should continue to rise given the current economy
