Our state is facing a tough economic situation, with many people worrying about how they can afford to keep their homes and care for their families. We need new ideas and fresh perspectives to find ways to balance our state budget. I believe that recovery and prosperity are within our reach, as long as we remain focused on long term economic growth and investing in our future.
I will work for:
*Diversified economic programs that invest in our future and bring new, innovative jobs to Hawaii
*Public-private partnerships to develop new areas for economic growth
*Cutting wasteful spending and fighting for effective programs that invest in our future
*Identifying state resources that can generate new revenue to pay for essential services and infrastructure needs
