A REAL PERSON
Raising five children and trying to run a small business in Hawaii, I understand how hard it can be just to get by. Hawaii’s high cost of living means most families live paycheck to paycheck, unable to save for a rainy day. Putting Community First means making sure that we prioritize what is best for the people and the land before profits. Each of us will thrive, when we all thrive together.
WITH REAL EXPERIENCE
In addition to working in the public and private sectors for over 20 years, I've also held elected and appointed leadership positions including: Chair of the Hawaii County Democratic Party, Advocacy Chair for the Zonta Club of Hilo, member of the County Board of Appeals and as a paddling coach. As your council member, I bring the well rounded background necessary to address the increasingly complex challenges we face as a community.
FOR REAL REPRESENTATION
Having canvassed door-to-door over the last five years and through my volunteer work in our community, I recognize that we have wealth of know-how and dedication to service in District 1. Yet, many well-developed community plans sit on the shelf gathering dust. As a Council member I will honor the past work of this community, support community driven efforts and ensure that we move from plans to action!
I humbly ask for your vote for Hawaii County Council District 1. If elected, I will count on your input to help develop solutions and to hold me accountable. I would be honored to serve as your voice on the Council and I am ready to work hard with you and for you on behalf of our community.
