Ewa Beach is my home. I've seen family die from speeding accidents. Friends incarcerated from substance abuse. Neighbors become victims of crime. I want to help heal our community and provide our residents with safer roads, substance abuse support and stronger crime prevention programs.
Education is important. The only way to improve our education in Ewa Beach is by attracting and retaining quality teachers. We have a teacher shortage in Hawaii and Ewa Beach is at a disadvantage with high student enrollment which limits teacher-student interaction. I'd like to empower our teachers by providing them more support so that in turn our keiki can benefit from a quality education.
My roots begin and end in Ewa Beach. One of the biggest contributions I continually try to advocate for our community is to improve the quality of life for our residents. That includes improving our parks, beautifying our beaches and strengthening our local economy.
