So with two decades of these two guys as mayor....is anything better?
Any long term problems resolved?

Sadly, I can't think of any real improvements either of them accomplished. As much as I don't like Billy Kenoi, at least he temporarily stopped the burgeoning county payroll from growing. It should be noted, however, that he was forced to enact a hiring freeze because of the revenue drop during the Great Recession. Speaking of which, Billy furloughed 25% of the county work force, and the services we got were in many ways better than what Harry Kim has managed with a full and even bigger workforce. Right now the bus system is a shambles and the dumps are struggling to cope. And don't start me on the building permitting and inspection process. Can anyone think of anything that has improved? I can't.

Quality of life has improved for the "right" people: more family now have jobs, everyone got a raise, some even got plenty overtime, healthcare and pension secure, what more could you ask?

Oh come on now! Give credit where credit is due.

When the sky was falling Harry saved us. We know the sky was falling because something obviously did hit him on the head.
