2 REASONS - Why Run for Political Office & Why State Senate

1. TOPPLE HAWAII DEMOCRATS - I am running for Political Office in the Beautiful & Diverse State of Hawai'i because We need an IMMEDIATE & SUBSTANTIAL departure from the current & past half century+ of Hawaii Democrat Party Rule.  If I am not part of the Solution, then I am part of the Problem.  I choose to be Part of the Solution.  Despite being an effective Politician for Our Dist 22, incumbent Senator Donavan Dela Cruz is a Major in the Hawaii Democratic Party Machine.  He along with the Democrat Majority must be unseated... OR our New Normal will be the Old Normal.

2. COMPASSIONATE LEADERSHIP - We Require MORE female government leaders.  Since CM Heidi Tsuneyoshi & State Rep Amy Perruso are doing such excellent work for our Community, I've chosen to go after Mr Donavan's seat.
