By implementing economic policies that benefit workers as well as small businesses we can help lift people out of financial hardships.
The state must also face the fact that many of the homeless are mentally ill or have substance abuse issues. We need long term care facilities to easy the burden of homeless on the streets.
Workers in our state earn well below the national average for their occupations/positions. We need to hold larger businesses and corporations accountable and demand our fair share.
Criminals are running free and creating chaos and fear in our communities. We can't continue to allow criminals to roam free. We need to support the Honolulu Police Department by enacting tougher legislation on crimes so they're not constantly arresting the same people over and over.
Many criminals are back on the street before the police have even finished the report. This is unacceptable and society is suffering.
Give our small businesses a break! A tax break and relief that helps them keep their doors open and our residents employed.
Lawmakers continuously talk about supporting small businesses but their policies show otherwise.
I will introduce and strongly push legislation that helps our small business.

I have a long term vision for our community because this is where my family, friends, neighbors and I live, work, grow, and explore.
This is why I feel that we need to enact legislation that works at the root causes of our issues instead of the temporary band-aids we keep getting.
