Your happiness, prosperity, and welfare matter to me!
YOUR happiness, welfare, & prosperity matter to me!
Many of our community members face economic and social pressures, holding 2 or 3 jobs to survive. Some seniors have to delay their retirement to keep up with the costs of living. We have more residents leaving Hawaiʻi in the past two years, in part due to escalating costs of living. We must protect the happiness, prosperity, and general welfare of our Residents First!
It shouldn’t matter if we’re young or old, rich or poor, Democrat or Republican, military or civilian, unionized or not, we all have the same dreams for ourselves and our children. We are all in the same canoe. We can be fair and reasonable in decision-making: we can all win!
As Mayor, I will be open to your ideas, concerns, and dreams. I will pay attention to all. I will work to support your ohana's happiness, and prosperity in Oahu. I also believe the role of the government is to stay out of your life as much as possible, by not placing undue burdens on you!
We all deserve to live in a safe, clean, healthy, and prosperous Hawaiʻi.
Property Tax CAP for Owner-
Occupants of 20 years or more
Many of our kupuna on fixed income are worried about being priced out of their house & home. Property taxes, insurances, utilities, maintenance, and other related expenses are escalating. Our kupuna worry that they will not be able to pass the family home to their children. Our owner-occupants provide long-term stability and support to our communities. They are the glue that holds our good communities together! We must support and prosper our long-time residents to help stabilize housing in Oʻahu, in addition to addressing the houseless and affordable housing needs.
I have worked in the real estate sector for over 30 years. I've seen the pressures on our residents. This is a matter of priority and values. I've been told that there is no money. However, my many years of civic participation at City Hall tell me there are too many pork projects, play-to-play, and wasteful expenditures. Residents First!
