Clearly, MauiTime readers have mixed feelings about Mayor Tavares. On the one hand, you voted her your favorite Mayoral candidate (in a squeaker over former Mayor Alan Ararkawa). But you also voted her runner up for Scariest Public Figure. ‘Guess it’s one of those love-hate things. We’ve made our feelings about the Mayor clear, but she is the incumbent and has already racked up a number of key endorsements, so it would certainly be unwise to discount her. On the other hand, the field of candidates vying to unseat her is large and diverse; whatever the outcome, this promises to be an interesting race.
