Issue Position: Responsible Development & Land Use

Issue Position

I believe that our State and city government needs to be more responsible in how it develops, (and allows others to develop) and maintains its land and infrastructure.

I support providing more affordable housing land when it is practical. We need to give the counties a certain level of home rule to encourage development that serves populations in our median household income bracket to provide more families with housing opportunities.

I prefer that government avoid the use Eminent Domain in its' land acquisitions, but understand that at times the practice is necessary. I support incorporating principles such as just compensation, true public purpose and accountability in the use of Eminent Domain.

AGRICULTURE: We need to preserve a sensible relationship between housing and agricultural land by working closely with the city Administration for a comprehensive strategy to have a fair balance and meet our future needs.

NEIGHBORHOOD BOARDS: The Honolulu Charter Commission, presented the revised Charter in 1972; today Honolulu 's Neighborhood Board system is made of 35 boards. The concept is for full citizen participation in government to better serve the community. I would like to thank my fellow board members in Waikiki , Ala Moana, Kakaako and Downtown for their service. Though these positions are advisory it is an important role for elected members to forward their concerns to appointed and elected officials.
