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

No, I believe the better route would be tax credits. I believe that the state had a junior kindergarten program that they eliminated.

What is your one big idea?

I believe that the people of Hawaii can be best served by term limits for House and Senate seats. I would call for staggered six-year terms for each office. I would also push for recall to allow the people to remove legislators who aren’t performing.
