Increased cost of living
Infrastructure upkeep and renovation
Traffic times during work commuting and pedestrian safety

If elected, what will be your highest legislative priority?

Seeking accountability for state taxes and highlighting corruption with government spending.

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

Working together with the state house district 19 representative; plan and secure funds for elevated pedestrian walkways along Kalanianaole highway. The effects of which will decrease traffic congestion from less stopping and increased pedestrian safety.

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

I want to change Hawaii politics because I want Hawaii to be affordable for everyone to live here. Being Born and raised in Hawaii, I know that it's a tough choice faced by many families and my generation to choose putting up with the high cost of living in Hawaii or moving to the mainland where the jobs pay better and housing and food is cheaper. We shouldn't be forced to make that choice and in the long run my goal as a politician will always be to help make Hawaii and place for everyone now and in the future to enjoy.
