Ashley Kierkiewicz has avoided many questions from her constituents, and I have sent her my questions through many channels without any sort of a response yet.

This is my questions to both Ashley Kierkiewicz and Matt Klienfelder in June of 2019. I sent this through both email, and their website(s).

The first letter is to;

Matt Kanaelii-Kleinfelder



Dear Matt

“I want to be very clear in our support for the TMT.
This is bringing in much needed jobs to a community that just got rekt by a natural disaster.
The protesters are breaking the law, blocking a county road, and preventing a lot of people from going to work.
I hope that they end their protest soon. Puna and Hawaii in general really need this project.
A lot of labor unions (labor unions who apparently endorse you) are out in protest FOR the TMT project.
You can read the two articles that I have written on this subject.

This is our model rocket celebration in Pahoa last week.
Ryan Thompson ”

The second letter was toAshley Kierkiewicz

Ashley Kierkiewicz Hawai’i County Council, District 4

Dear Ashley,

Aloha!  I wanted to comment on your speech on July 20th last year, when you spoke about the financial challenges that our community is facing post-eruption.
I am troubled by the support that Matt Kanaelii-Kleinfelder is not supporting the TMT, and is infact emboldening protesters with his support of them.

As you well know the TMT project is a no-waste facility, it is not impacting historical or present day ritual or burial practices.
The EIS has been very enlightening on what the impact will be.  The fact that 3 telescopes are coming down, to make room for this one telescope is a grand compromise IMHO.

The protesters currently are shutting down public/county roads, impeding people in their productive daily routines, and blocking many workers from performing any of their daily duties for their jobs.

I would like to see you support the TMT, and oppose the protesters who are hurting our already fractured community.

I have a local radio show, that I broadcast from my home in Nanawale.   I have written two blogs about this issue.

My family of 6 have been celebrating the new STEM/SPACE programs coming to Puna and Hawaii island by launching rockets in Pahoa over the last couple of weeks.

Please watch our celebration at this short video;

Mahalo for your time,
Ryan Thompson

I also want to know more about the ethics investigation on Ashley, please give us an update Ashley Kierkiewicz

Lastly, I will pose the same questions to the Hawaii County Council that I posted to the Board of Ethics on February 28th 2020.
