“I do not believe that increasing taxes is the answer to our failing school system. We must conduct an internal audit of the Department of Education to eliminate waste and inefficiency so more dollars are going directly to the students.”

For Hawaii’s Aug. 11 primary, Civil Beat asked candidates to answer some questions about where they stand on various issues and what their priorities will be if elected.

Andria Tupola - Governor 2018!

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!
