Campaign themes


Manabat's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Public Infrastructure
Excerpt: "Ewa Beach is one of the oldest communities on Oahu and so are our public infrastructures. If elected, I plan to fight for funding to improve our sidewalks, sewers, roads, and schools."
  • Education
Excerpt: "As a parent, I will fight to protect our children's education. Even if you aren't a parent yourself, the students of now will someday be the future, as we were before them. That being said, their education must be a top priority."
  • Security & Safety
Excerpt: "Everyone wants to feel safe at home and outside. With increased police presence, the response time of officers will be shorter and individuals will think twice before committing a crime, knowing a police officer is nearby."
  • Illegal dumping
Excerpt: "Living in Hawaii, we have a beautiful home. However, if there is trash all over our roadways, it takes away from the beauty of our island home. I want to pass legislation making the penalty for dumping harsh enough to highly deter people from dumping on the streets."
  • Job Creation
Excerpt: "Cost of living here in Hawaii is very high. Everyone needs a job to survive. Any legislation that has tax breaks for small businesses or helps to create jobs has my vote."
