What qualifies you to represent the people of Hawaii?

I have lived in Hawaii all my life and I have always been part of the "people"

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

Affordable Homes
Forensic Audit of the Rail
Excessive Taxes

If elected, what will be your highest legislative priority?

Affordable Homes

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

I am different from other Lt. Governors because I already have a close relationship with governor candidate Terrence Teruya we have already discussed the elimination of taxes on unprepared food and prescription drugs. Also we agreed that affordable housing needs to be kept forever affordable. We talked about the implementation of the ferry system which will allow The Bus and The Handi-Van service to branch out to service our physically challenged citizens on the outer islands which will also bring new jobs.

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

I have worked closely with my governor candidate Terrence Teruya and many of the issues facing our state we have solutions, I cannot promise problems will go away overnight, everything has structure and that is my approach, I do not go by guesses I need the hard facts to work together with the governor towards a viable solution no matter what the problem is.
