Hawaii is Home
I moved to Hawaii when I was 27 years old, after having lived, worked and studied in Japan. I raised two beautiful and accomplished daughters here. I married my second wife here and when she passed away I brought her home and laid her to rest in Kaneohe. Hawaii is now and will forever be my home.
A Place for our Children
I fell in love with Hawaii the first day I arrived here. And so, I have committed myself to making Hawaii a place that we can successfully raise our children. And once they have recieved a great education, let's ensure they have great careers to come home to.
Finding our Place in the Sun
Today the young people of Hawaii face greater financial challenges than ever before. Taxes are too high, homes are too expensive and wages are too low. It's time to invest in infrastructure for jobs, improve the efficiency of government and ensure homes are built to serve the needs of the people of Hawaii first.
