Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Tough economic times
require experienced leadership. Faced with the most serious economic
recession in our lifetime, Hawaii needs leaders who have proven track
records and commitment to our community through service with
organizations such as the PTA, youth athletic leagues, the Tax Review
Commission, professional organizations and community groups. During the
next Legislative session, legislators will be making decisions that will
have long-lasting effects on our personal futures and that of our State.
The difficult economic times are not yet behind us and the State will
continue to face challenges with severely reduced revenues and increased
demands for services.
Who can best make
these difficult decisions and lead us to economic recovery? I have
the experience, the academic background and skills to get the job done.
Like many of you, I have raised a family, paid a mortgage, and strived
to build a business, all in Manoa. We have all survived the hard times
as well as benefited from the good.
With my many
years as a volunteer for community groups, government agencies,
professional groups, and various private organizations, I have the
experience on which you can rely, to continue work as your
representative. My practical approach to life has permitted me to earn
the respect of my community and my peers and it is this quality that I
bring to the House of Representatives, on your behalf.
