Oahu Resident Trustee

General Building Contractor

Being a citizen like everyone else and wanting to represent those who feel disenfranchised from their own government.
1) For Native Hawaiians its placing the assets that are rightfully theirs ( The Department of Hawaiian Homelands & Office of Hawaiian Affairs) under their direct and exclusive control.
2) For all people of Hawaii an efficiently run government that carefully stewards the resources the citizens entrust them with.
3) For working men and women its building a prosperity and affordable society that unites the islands
A Native Hawaiian Corporation along the lines of the Alaska Native Claims Act.
This would place the 220,000 acres of Hawaiian Homelands and the $600,000,000 held by the Office of Hawaiian Affairs into a shareholder controlled Native Hawaiian Corporation.
Economic Sovereignty is an essential element for native Hawaiians to perpetuate their culture through the 21st century and beyond.
Hawaiians in control of Hawaiian assets would solve the many short comings of the present state run entities.
A Native Hawaiian Corporation is a free market answer to native Hawaiian issues and would duplicate the success of the Alaskan Native Corporations.
Nothing can match the stewardship that the native Hawaiian themselves would have as shareholders directing their own corporate governance.
The success of this stewardship and the cause of protecting the native Hawaiian culture would be of tremendous benefit for all people who love and care for the people of Hawaii.
I will advocate for ideas and values that empower people over politics.
