I've been an unpaid advocate for Good Governance at Honolulu Hale for over 20 years. We have institutional memory and operations knowledge of Honolulu Hale. We know what's going on.

We're not asking for your donations. We're asking for your trust that we will always put Residents First!

Our campaign has NO money from Lobbyists 
or PACs.  

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.

Together, let's plan for the next seven generations.

Let's get excited about making Oahu the best home for our residents! As Mayor, my primary kuleana is to ensure safety, peace,cleanliness, prosperity, and sustainability for you and future generations.


We can't rely on the old "Tax and Spend, Tax & Spend" mentality. We need to make logical and bold decisions to secure our future. The escalating costs of the Honolulu Rail Skyline are  ballooning. We must reset and contain the rail  so our basic core services and other needed projects are not undermined.


Our neighborhoods and businesses deserve safety and ease. Our residents must be able to live and thrive here. Let's choose right priorities and put our residents first!

Rail Skyline is a Fiscal Disaster

I'm  originally from Singapore. I appreciate efficient multi-modal transportation. 

I've been participating and observing Honolulu Hale for the last two decades. 

We need to stop playing games. Status Quo will not cut it.The Rail is out of control. If we do not contain and reset this project costs, we and our children will forever be burdened with escalating property taxes and costs of living to feed this antiquated monster. 

Imagine the billions of dollars that could be allocated to other nice city projects and housing, if we don't have to keep feeding this rail fiscal blackhole. 

Portion of the Rail is in the Honolulu Sea Level Rise Inundation Zone. Why are we ignoring this? 

Stand with Choon!

We're completely grassroots & Volunteers!

No Donations from Lobbyists/PACs

 YOUR BEST DONATION is telling your friends and family to consider voting for me!

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!
