Dear Friend and Neighbor,
I hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. As we turn the corner from the pandemic, I’d like to thank you very much for your past support. It’s been truly gratifying to be a member of the State House of Representatives. I’d like to continue to serve District 15, Kaua`i, and the State of Hawai`i, and have filed for re-election.
I currently serve as Chair of the Housing Committee and member of the Transportation and Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs Committees. I’m pleased that close to $1 billion of funding for affordable housing was approved this session. I’m also thrilled that social safety net bills that I introduced, preventive dental care for adults on Medicaid and rent subsidies for families with extremely low incomes, were approved. My bill to lift the ceiling for State park expenditures was incorporated into the State budget, which will be a game-changer in providing additional resources to improve our parks, trails, and natural resources.
I’ve worked very hard with the community, county, and visitor industry to develop a model for regenerative tourism at Haena State Park; championed master planning on vacant state lands surrounding Mahelona Hospital; and secured funding for coordinated stream maintenance and flood control efforts on Kauai’s north shore.
Developing a Kaua’i pilot for universal three- and four-year old education; creating mobility hubs to reduce visitor use of cars and reduce traffic congestion, and building permanent supportive housing are some of the efforts I look forward to pursuing in a new term in office.
Thank you again for giving me a voice at the State Legislature. Feel free to call me at (808) 635-1507 if you have any questions or concerns. Please continue to be safe.
