Do you support the constitutional amendment to allow public money to be spent on private preschool? Why?

No. This will lead to over regulation, control, waste and inefficiencies, and bad curriculum like Pono Choices. Example: Hawaii’s public school system ranks nationally #1 in cost per student and #48 in test scores. Common Core, a federal K-12 education mandate, is also an impending disaster.

What is your one big idea?

To eliminate decades of political barriers and to build BRIDGES OF RELATIONSHIPS among elected officials and residents to resolve conflicting interests, views and ideas that impact families, the core value and foundation of our society, and to facilitate diverse, prosperous and peaceful communities with opportunities for growth.
