"If Republicans Weren't A Dying Species, Would They Make Good Pets?"
Above is the title of a speech that was presented at the Smart Business Hawaii (SBH) meeting on November 19, 2009 by former UHPA Associate Executive Director John Radcliffe. John was the Executive Director of the Hawaii State Teachers Association (HSTA), a Democratic Party primary candidate for the 1st Congresstional District in the 1988 election, and is now a principle in the Capital Consultant lobbying firm. John is known for his candor and wit. Those in attendance, including SBH Executive Director (Republican Senator) Sam Slom, and Republican Houe members Barbara Marumoto and Gene Ward were taken by John's candid views, but they did not protest too loudly their disagreement.
