My story of service started years ago when I learned that a true community is not just about being geographically close to someone - it's about feeling connected and fulfilling our role and responsibility. I am so grateful and honored that my community has trusted me to lead for the past four years in new empowering ways. I am taking the step to run for GOVERNOR this year because Hawaiʻi deserves better!
