I want everyday-Native Hawaiians to be represented at the 'aha. The decisions made there will shape the foundation for a Native Hawaiian government that must improve the lives of Native Hawaiians. This nation-building process is an opportunity for all Native Hawaiians to come together – elect representatives and decide on a plan for a better future.
My life and work experiences allow me to represent a broad cross-section of Native Hawaiians. I'm a single father and active homesteader working 50-60 hours a week. I am blessed to care for my tutu who once cared for me. I know how hard getting to college is - as well as the opportunities it provides - because I'm the first college graduate in my ʻohana.
This ʻaha must set a strong framework for how our government will work. We must build on the work of our kupuna and press forward for our children. I envision a Native Hawaiian government that makes living in our ancestral homeland easier for Native Hawaiians. We have the right to solve our own concerns and manage our resources towards achieving our own community’s goals. This government must clear roadblocks that prevent Hawaiians from achieving success. I humbly as for your vote.
