Should OHA be allowed to build residential units in Kakaako Makai?
OHA’s Kakaako Makai lands are valued at an estimated $200 million. We are seeking an ability to develop the land in a manner that is consistent with a $200 million settlement. Our initial planning clarifies that we cannot achieve that with the current land use restrictions.
Should Native Hawaiians seek federal recognition?
I support the will of the people. OHA should remain neutral and acknowledge the Hawaiian governing entity’s role in making decisions related to this matter. The decision must be made by all Hawaiians, not just those who have signed on to a state-created roll.
