Stephen Parker Waipa for Sheriff, 1928.

Stephen Parker Waipa


I am the son of Captain Robert Parker Waipa. I served in the police force in various positions under A. M. Brown for 19 years and under Colonel Curtis Piehu Iaukea for two years, and was let go when William P. Jarrett became Sheriff because we are of different political parties.

I served in the armed forces of Hawaii from the rank of soldier to sergeant.

Currently, I am an inspector for the Mutual Telephone Company and worked for that organization for thirteen years.

I have faith that because of all the different things I know, that I am fully qualified to serve as the sheriff of this county, while being able to carry out all the duties of this office promptly, fairly, righteously, and intelligently, so that our beloved county can have peace.

Don’t forget to give your ballots to me so that peace can reside in our land.
