Hilo, HI - Council member Jen Ruggles is holding a community meeting to speak with the public on the work she has been doing in her capacity as a council member to advocate on behalf of her constituents since her recent decision to refrain from legislating until the County Council’s attorney assures her that she is not committing war crimes. It will be held Monday, October 15th at 6pm at the Kea`au Community Center.

The meeting stems from an announcement that Ruggles made on August 21st stating that she had come to understand that she may be in violation of her oath of office to uphold the U.S. Constitution and may be incurring criminal liability for war crimes.

During Ruggles’ last town hall she made a presentation explaining the legal framework she is complying with and the work she has been doing. Ruggles had announced that she would be holding “frequent town halls to keep everyone updated on how she is advocating for the rights of protected persons and her district.” She announced that she “is putting every agent of the United States on notice concerning the rights of protected persons,” and handed out copies of a letter she had sent to Queen’s Hospital and 32 Hawaii circuit court judge concerning foreclosures.

Council member Jen Ruggles represents district 5 which includes upper Puna and Kalapana. Ruggles will be explaining the reasons for the letters sent to Queen’s Hospital and to the 32 circuit court judges regarding foreclosures and title insurance. She says she hopes the public will take advantage of this opportunity which is also open to people outside of her district. There will be time reserved to ask questions and comment on this complex topic with profound implications.

To msboejangles:How can Ms Ruggles be representing district 5 when she refuses to vote on issues that affect district 5?
Is she still using County resources to further her personal agenda?
Do you know who is paying her attorney?
Do you work for her and are we paying your salary as well?
Last time I checked, she took an oath of office and now she refuses to uphold that oath. That sounds like an actionable offense for County Prosecutor? Not a lawyer, but someone should check.

Are all county employees committing war crimes? Should they all refrain from supporting the occupying regime? Will they still be paid?

Anyone who thinks action will be taken is delusional.
