District 13: Pāʻia, Ha‘iku, Hāna, Kaupo, Moloka’i, Lānaʻi, Kaho’olawe and Molokini

Issues

I have knocked on over 1,000 doors in our district and spoken to many incredible residents. Listening to your concerns is my number one priority. Here are some of the top issues.

  • Investing in our infrastructure and roads such as the Paia bypass
  • Building more affordable homes to reduce the cost of housing for our local residents.
  • Important funding for rural school and an efficient educational system, which gives teachers the power to create their own curriculum.
  • Quality health care and expansion to senior services.
  • Eradication of coqui frogs and little fire ants.
  • Restoring mauka to makai stream flow for all East Maui streams while diverting an appropriate amount of water to keep Central Maui green.
  • GMO labeling and the right to know what we eat.
  • Buffer zones around schools, neighborhoods, and parks that are near agricultural fields that spray restricted use pesticides.
  • Bike lanes on state roads to protect bikers and drivers from cycling accidents.
  • Fiscal responsibility to put our tax dollars to best use.
