Hawaii County Council Chairperson Dominic Yagong will be the guest speaker at the Conservative Forum for Hawai‘i, this Sunday (Jan 23) at the Naniloa Volcanoes Resort beginning at 2 p.m. in the Sandalwood Room on “ The County of Hawaii at a Budgetary Crossroads: Where Do We Go From Here?”

Mayor Billy Kenoi recently stated, “we now have a county government that we cannot afford.” Yagong will share his perspective of meeting, the budgetary crisis facing the Administration and the Hawai‘i County Council.

Yagong was selected Council Chairperson this past December after serving 5 terms on the Hawai‘i County Council. During which time chaired the Finance, Environmental Management, Parks and Recreation, and Public Works Committees. Yagong is often described as the “watch dog” for Hawaii Taxpayers due to his intense and outspoken scrutiny of government spending. “We cannot spend our way out of debt, and we must learn to live within our means,” says Yagong.

The Conservative Forum for Hawaii is non-partisan and meets monthly to discuss topics of interest. The public is invited and for more information please contact President Walter Moe at 966-5420 or e-mail him at

    Mr. Yagong is indeed a mighty political figure, made so through media support of his untenable, feel-good proposals. There will always be a place for quixotic characters, without whom any story is less interesting. What’s sadly ironic about Yagong’s political career is his efforts to cut government spending have: created huge expenses in formal debate, pissed-off County and State professionals, provided reporters with sensational half-truths, and effected no substantial changes or savings in the status quo. For many his name has become synonymous with shibai: political theater. I guess everybody loves a clown, especially Stephens Media.
