Campaign themes


Martin addressed the following issue on his campaign website:[2]

Urban Housing

  • Excerpt: "Honolulu would be better served by putting "Families First" and devoting more of our resources toward stable housing for the large number of homeless children and youth. We need to reassess our housing strategy and shift our policies to first helping our needy families and the working poor. Yes, we must still commit to providing a decent level of services to the chronically homeless, but we must face the reality that many of them will never be self-sufficient [...] Affordable housing for low-income families is the most significant assistance government can provide, both short and long term [...] I would like the city to put the bulk of our housing assistance where it can do the most good for the most people. Putting families first can save the lives of children now in temporary shelters or on the street, and give them a reason to hope for better days ahead."
