Issues

ECONOMY

We must diversify our economy to improve our economy. We must cut regulations and cut taxes to encourage the creation of new businesses.

  

Economic Development


As Lt. Governor, I will advocate for improving and increasing economic development. I will work with the private sector and the legislature to create a more vibrant economy.

EDUCATION

High expectations, academic competition, and critical thinking should be the standard.

  

K-12 Education


Teaching Hawaiian History and Hawaiian Culture should be mandatory subjects in the public schools. Teaching Hawaiian History and Hawaiian Culture should be recommended subjects in the private schools.

  

K-12


Teaching the Hawaiian Language should be a mandatory subject in the public schools. Teaching the Hawaiian Language should be a recommended subject in the private schools.

GOVERNMENT REFORM

The Office of Lt. Governor has been underutilized for years. As Lt. Governor, I will be a very pro-active advocate for good public policies.

  

Incompetence


The nuclear missile attack false alarm demonstrates the failure of Democrat leadership and their incompetence at all levels, system-wide and individual.

  

More Incompetence


The Hawaii State Hospital allowed a mentally deranged murderer to escape to the mainland. 

  

Transparency


The Rail boondoggle is billions of dollars over budget. There should be a financial audit, but the Democrats are fighting that tooth and nail to hide their incompetence, waste, and fraud.

  

Corruption


The State of Hawaii could save tens of millions of dollars of waste and fraud the next day a new administration is sworn in by changing bad policies and by having political will, backbone, & courage.

  

Accountability


I see the Lt. Governor becoming an unofficial Inspector General which would be very different than the State Auditor.

  

Taxes


I support tax cuts, and I oppose tax increases. I believe you should be able to keep your own hard earned money.

GUNS

I support the Second Amendment.  I am a Life Member of the NRA.

  

Constitutional Carry


I support Constitutional Carry

  

2nd Amendment


I am Pro-2ndAmendment.  I support and believe in the right to bear arms.  The Bill of Rights of the United States of America Constitution gives us this right.  It is all about freedom and liberty.

IMMIGRATION

Illegal immigration is illegal. Legal immigration is legal. I support legal immigration. I oppose illegal immigration.

  

Legal Immigration


Legal immigration is easy to support. I support legal immigration. When liberals support illegal immigration, they demonstrate a fundamental disrespect for the rule of law.

MILITARY

A strong Hawaii State defense requires a strong National Guard and competent people at the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency.

  

Military


I strongly support the military unlike liberals who give lip service to "supporting the troops" but deep down really hate the military and everything it stands for in American society.

  


iSSUES

TAXES

I support tax cuts, and I oppose tax increases.

  

Tax Policy


Public officials whose kneejerk first reaction to a fiscal crisis is to raise taxes hurt our community by not understanding basic economics. We must expel this kind of thinking from government.

  

Tax Reform


It's possible to raise more revenue for government without raising taxes. You just have to have the backbone and political will to be creative and not fall into the old ways of raising taxes

  

Lowering Taxes


Small, medium, and large businesses will invest, expand, and create more jobs when their tax burden is low.
