Should there be additional restrictions on development in Kakaako? Why?
Yes. The infrastructure is inadequate for so much development AND we need more housing in Hawaii that is actually affordable.
What is your one big idea?
Every person in Hawaii deserves quality health care and safe housing. In an era in which wealth disparities have grown geometrically we are morally bound to provide both no matter what barriers exist. I would double the size of our Community Health Centers and repurpose state buildings to provide both within three years.
