When we get into our twenties and even our thirties we start our working lives and our priorities shift. For some of us, it’s an easy transition. For others, work troubles or personal struggles can lead to problems with drug and alcohol abuse or domestic violence.

I understand that these issues are linked. I believe in maintaining peace in our community while also treating the offender.

My priority will be on putting away the people who spread the poison of ice in our community, and those who perpetuate the violent crimes that come along with it.

I’ve shown that I can do that, my record speaks for itself. I have the leadership skills to show all of our young parents that Kaua’i is a safe place to raise our keikis.
