Chief Darryl Perry is running for office. He filed nominations papers for a set on the Kauai County Council. Perry has been police chief on the Garden Isle for six and a half years. Now he hopes to take the experience he has in law enforcement and apply it to a different position in county government. I HAVE MUCH MORE TO OFFER THE COUNTY, SO I WANTED TO GIVE THE PEOPLE OF KAUAI AND NIIHAU AN OPTION, WITH REGARD TO ELECTED OFFICIALS AT THE LEVEL OF THE COUNTY COUNCIL. AND I ALSO AM INTERESTED IN LEGILSILATIVE GOVERNMENT, I'VE BEEN IN THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH FOR ALMOST 40 YEARS AND I'D LIKE TO SEE THE OTHER SIDE OF THE POND, IF YOU WILL. The Kauai native will stay on the force through the election. If he is elected, he will resign his post, otherwise, he expects to retire sometime in the near future.
