I am committed to serving my community and have been involved in numerous community organizations. In addition to being on Neighbored Board No. 5, I am a member of Palolo Lions Club and Rotary Club of Honolulu and active with St. Louis Heights Community Association. Because of my past experiences with businesses and having worked at the legislature, I understand how our government impacts our lives and our community.
If God hasn't been able to stop corruption, I certainly can't. I believe we, as a society, need to refocus on moral character and vote for people we know to be trustworthy. The result of having an overwhelming majority party is that we lack transparency and competition as a check on its power.
I would plant 100 trees. Planting trees absorbs carbon dioxide, releases oxygen, improves ecosystems, prevents soil erosion and provides wildlife habitat.
The mandates and school shutdowns were harmful. Businesses closed with jobs and benefits lost, not to come back again. The loss of social interactions was detrimental because people are meant to be in community, engaged with each other. People need current information available to best protect themselves and their families, based on their own risk evaluation.

I have 11 years of business operations management which is underpinned by in depth training in listening to people. There is a disconnect between We the People and those representing us in office. I am not a politician, but I know all too well the struggles of trying to survive on this island. We are overdue for a shift in leadership which puts the people first over special interest. I love country and I love our state, I will stand behind the oath I took to uphold the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The first and most important issue that needs to be addressed is Election Integrity. 1. Clean out the voter roles 2. Ban electronic voting equipment 3. Voter ID and paper ballots only 4. Ban mail-in voting 5. Ban early voting 6. Create smaller precincts 7. Ban ballot harvesting 8. Make election day a holiday 9. Increase transparency 10. Heavy prison sentences for those who commit fraud

Yes, the Government overreach was devastating to our economy and our residents. Never again should the Government overstep their role to protect our individual liberties.
