House District 48 – Kahaluu | Ahuimanu | Kaneohe

Eldean L. Kukahiko (R)

I would propose a plan that would bring small farmers together, to be able to sell their produce to our schools. I would start by lobbying for authorization from the federal government and approval from our state to include “poi” as an approved starch for all Hawaii school lunches.

Jarrett Keohokalole (D)

I would streamline the regulatory process for restoration of Native Hawaiian farming and aquacultural areas and develop incentives for the creation and expansion of community garden programs. These may seem like small steps if done individually, but they are community-driven solutions to our significant food security and sustainability issues.

Kaimanu Takayama (L)

Eliminate ALL taxes, especially the income tax, in favor of a flat-rate sales tax not applicable to food or medical care. People should be able to keep 100 percent of their earnings. A national sales tax around 15-20 percent and a state sales tax around 10 percent is estimated to be sufficient.

Safety. Particularly minors facing stricter penalties when it comes to proper headgear. Requiring helmets for any public access or park area to protect our youth from unnecessary danger or even death. Find a way to make vouchers legal for public funds. Kids might as well use the money from the taxes. There has to be a way for it to be legalized in Hawaii. Develop a legalized way to introduce the voucher system.
