My Message To you.
I believe that for too long the people of Hawai'i have had to live as third-class citizens in their own home. Struggling to make ends meet by working two to three jobs just to survive here. For too long our leaders have put their interest a head of the interest of the people by siding with the corporations, lobbyists, developers and foreign investors who are using Hawai'i to increase their financial portfolios.
We can no longer stand still and allow business as usual to continue if we want to build a better Hawai'i for all of us and our generations to come. We need to stand as one and stand up to the corruption and greed which is destroying our beautiful Aina. If we do not, then Hawai'i as we know it shall never be Hawai'i. We must take a stand and say enough is enough and take control of what happens here for all our generations.
If elected Mayor by the people of Honolulu, we shall accomplish all that and more.
Why are you running for Mayor?
I am running for Mayor to serve the people in a way in which they have not been served by their elected officials in decades:
What is your story?
I am just a local boy, born and raised in Honolulu. I enjoy the outdoors, and what Hawaii has to offer all of us. I am no different from anyone else. I have made my share of mistakes and I am not perfect. I am just another person in the many faces that make Hawai'i what it is. This is my aina and I just want to serve our people, to change the direction of where we are going and to give the government back to the people.
What makes you qualified to run for Mayor?
This question gets asked a lot for some reason but, my answerr is simple: the constitution of both the United States and the state of Hawai'i qualifies me to run for office.
What do you want to accomplish as Mayor?
I hope to accomplish the following:
