We need to fully fund our public schools and treat our teachers like the highly educated professionals that they are, so that our children and their potential are honored.

We are one 'ohana, from Wahiawā to Whitmore Village to Launani Valley. We are a proud local working class community, grounded in diverse cultural traditions and social norms, all of which put the common good before personal profit and emphasize the need to kokua.
