  1. Housing, Health and Economic Development.
  2. I offer my OHA experience. Having served as trustee for the island of Moloka’i and Maui, respectively, until the US Supreme Court invalidated OHA elections in 2000. I also offer my accomplishments as former trustee, creating the Native Hawaiian Revolving Loan Fund and many health and economic programs.
    I offer my 38 years of government service as a civil servant to help bring accountability, transparency, and respectability back to OHA.
  3. I will support the protection of our culture and our environmental concerns of Maunakea through a consultative and acceptable process. OHA’s mandate is to better the conditions of Native Hawaiians and to improve the quality of life to the extent possible; through coordination, cooperation and partnerships.
