At my next Policy, Economic Development and Agriculture Committee Meeting the Technology Division will present updates our county preparedness for cyber security! At this conference I learned more in depth about this important protection for the county. So awesome! Learning soooooo much here in Washington D.C.
Washington D.C. memories visits, got into the newest museum African American and also saw the newly released portraits of Michelle Obama and President Obama. Our HAWAII State Association of Counties visited Representatives Tulsi Gabbard, Colleen Hanabusa, Senators Brian Schatz and Mazie Hirono. I asked each to please keep the Soil and Water Conservation funding $8M as we hear the it may be deleted from the Trump FY 2019 budget (Maui County receives $1.5 m) and I asked for EPA direction on the cesspool conversion by 2050. This has residents concerned. @ Washington, District of Columbia
Historic day to break ground for the Upcountry Skatepark in Pukalani park! It was four years in the making with Councilmembers Mike White, Gladys Baisa planting the initial seeds to make this happen! As a new Councilmember I helped by finding more funds to ensure it happened! The thought was dreamed by two seniors at king Kekaulike high school. The community spoke for the kids and construction begins on March 15th. Thank you Goodfellow Brothers for your commitment to the community! Success! #dreamshappen
