Vice chairman, county GMAC. We advise the mayor on outdoor community matters and Hawaiian cultural gathering practices We also work with Hawaii state legislation getting our Bills and other outdoor related Bills passed. And stopping poorly written Bills from moving forward. I decided to run when my legislators wouldn’t return any calls, and Bills were being passed that benefited the political parties and not the people. State run organization’s policies are based on ideology instead of science. And the blatant corruption running rampant in our government
More stringent background checks. If you can’t legally own a gun in Hawaii or can’t pass a background check to be let into a nuclear power plant, you shouldn’t be in public office. We need to set a higher standard. We need to stop the practice of the chairperson of the committee’s having total control of if a Bill moves forward or dies. We need more stringent sunshine laws to stop back room deals. Start actually firing people and prosecuting criminal behavior. Zero tolerance. Public servants, should be closely scrutinized.
Stop the eradication of non native trees, unless more native trees are being planted than being removed. Focus more on wave technology for a more dependable 24/7 energy source. Lots of new technology that Hawaii should be in the forefront. A more sustainable food security, no reason we can’t be more self sufficient. Pass liberal laws allowing the growing and manufacturing of hemp, and hemp products
Have mandatory sentencing for habitual offenders. Non violent, drug and alcohol related offenses, should be deferred to either a inpatient or outpatient treatment facility. They are off the streets at less cost to the state and hopefully some, can get clean and sober and turn their life around. Maybe set up transitional homes , where inmates can integrate back into society. Have a job, a place to live and a support system before being turned loose unprepared and broke
