Aloha!

With the higher vaccination rate and diligence of our residents, it's looking like we are on the path to re-opening more and more with cautious optimism.  The Senate Special Committee on COVID-19, which I serve on, has been working since early 2020 on asking tough questions to mitigate the pandemic's effects in Hawaii.  Let’s all continue to be careful as we care for each other.

Meanwhile, our office has been working diligently for the district.  We’ve focused on how our visitor industries can change to sustain our beautiful environment, culture and people. Unchecked growth is out.  Instead, destination management is in --providing quality experiences for quality visitors, beginning with safety.   In McCully-Moiliili, businesses beleaguered by homeless and crime, asked for help.  Speaker Scott Saiki and I convened a meeting to connect businesses with the HPD District 7 Command, and the State and City homelessness offices. The result is a Business Security Watch (BSW) team that has cleared the sidewalks and keeps an eye on crime and homeless.  In Kakaako, we heard residents' opposition to high rise residential development along the precious shoreline between Ala Moana Blvd and the ocean.   Thankfully, this “build to the highest and best use” legislation stalled in the House. We need Honolulu’s last open coastline not only for current residents but for future generations.

We are looking forward to 2022 to introduce legislation to address crime, homelessness, housing, sea level rise, disruptive noise, and to help our kupuna.  We, together, will make a difference!

Build houses for residents, not outsiders

Honolulu is nearly the least affordable of 500 U.S. housing markets, and on our island, people can't drive to the next housing market for relief. Sharon has been fighting Kakaako's "luxury blight" since it hit with full force five years ago.

Help kupuna remain at home

Our culture means we care about, and care for, our kupuna. We must support home caregiving to help seniors who want to stay at home with their families.

Reduce crime, including drug-induced

As our senator, Sharon will, through legislation, put teeth in the legal requirement to comply with the state's database drug-monitoring program, currently only 10% effective.
