Kauai County gets the Bizarro Award

Brian Baptiste, Mayor of Kauai wants to ban gated communities. He has written a measure he plans to send to the county council for approval that bans gates to private roads serving 5 or more homes. Guard stations and other means of access restriction would be prohibited under this measure. "Communities should be welcoming and accessible to everyone," he said in the Sunday, March 27 issue of the Honolulu Star-Bulletin. "I envision our island with integrated communities where people of various socio-economic levels and cultures can live together without gates or barriers that hinder access."

How did this guy ever get elected?!!
