What qualifies you to represent the people of Hawaii?

My many years of experience have prepared me well for this office. I developed extensive skills throughout my life that even in distressed situations make me able to handle finding solutions and making important decisions on issues that pertain to this office. I will bring my leadership abilities, creative strategies, patience and creative problem-solving to this position/office.

What are the top three challenges facing the voters you seek to represent?

1. Education - I would make education my number one issue and make it a top priority to build the foundation for the future prosperity and quality of life of our children. I would protect and fight for our children from gun violence, propose a bill for a security detail at all school campuses and provide a better school environment and stronger neighborhoods to prepare our children as future leaders.
I also support programs that have a proven track records in increasing student aptitude, rewarding teachers and providing options that give students the opportunity to succeed.

2. - The other issue is our State Highways and City Streets - I would get the funding to fix our State Highway system, which hasn't been touched since Obama was our President, and get the Mayor moving on fixing our City Streets instead of being fixated on this rail system.

3. Economy - I would maintain a strong, vibrant Windward Oahu and have a strong sustainable economic growth that creates jobs, allowing us to keep commitments and to create new opportunities for generations to come.

If elected, what will be your highest legislative priority?

Education - I would support an environment that supports better schools and student achievements by using City & State services and resources. I would work with our schools, educators, leaders and parents to build a partnership that encourages excellence in the classroom and supports academic success.

If elected, what can you do to improve the lives of your constituents?

By helping to keep the housing and cost of living affordable. I would encourage more private sector investments in existing affordable housing properties where federal funding has failed. Encourage the re-purposing of existing real estate into rental apartments. Provide tax rebates, adjust zoning requirements and other incentives.

Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?

I was born in Hawaii and served honorable in the United States Army during the Vietnam War. My years of hard work and dedication to my self and family speaks well of who I have become as a person. I'm retired and still invest in real estate.

I look forward to working with my constituents in setting our priorities to improve our lives today and invest in our future and the future of our children.
