What qualifies you to represent the people of Hawaii?

I have served in the State House for the past two sessions and they have been very productive for East Hawai'i. Beyond that, I have several years of small business experience, double majored in Economics and Political Science at UH Hilo, and have spent most of the past 10 years investing in our community through coaching football, basketball, and academic decathlon.

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

High cost-of-living
Housing shortage
Lack of economic opportunities

If elected, what will be your highest legislative priority?

Addressing our high cost-of-living and low wage growth

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

I will fight for lower taxes for local residents and try my best to revitalize Hilo's stagnant economy, primarily though reinvesting in Banyan Drive, HCC, and UH Hilo.

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

The past two years have been extremely rewarding and I look forward to continuing to serve Hilo and help foster a brighter future.
