Do you support the constitutional amendment to allow public money to be spent on private preschool? Why?
I support the amendment insofar as providing funding for educating thousands of our pre-K students. However, I have reservations regarding the possible entanglement that may likely arise while monitoring and regulating the administration of public funding. From observing my child’s experience, I believe that DOE-led pre-K programs are beneficial.
What is your one big idea?
Electric bill credits for ratepayers who live near large renewable-energy projects such as the Kahuku wind farms. A state law can be made to mandate this bill credit which will provide a reasonable benefit to hosting communities like Kahuku and perhaps others in the near future.
