What qualifies you to represent the people of Hawaii?

I’m invested and live in my county. I’m a dad, husband and business owner who cares deeply for the future of Puna and the Big Island of Hawai’i.

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

We want safety, better transportation(roads and mass transportation) and economic opportunities.

If elected, what will be your highest legislative priority?

Create a safe, well-connected district using legislation that improves the quality of life for the majority of District 5.

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

I want to create a solid community and be an effective leader. It all starts with getting into the community and hearing the concerns of our district. Then we move forward and get creative to address issues and find solutions.

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

A good friend of mine enlightened me that I was more a statesman than a politician and I’m looking forward to creating legislation that uplifts the people of the Big Island as a whole.
