Issues

Campaign themes

2012

In information submitted to Ballotpedia, Isa stated:[1]

"The main issue is protecting our seniors taking care of our elderly from paying more taxes. Making sure they have health care, long term care, making sure caregivers are trained. Other issue is the protecting our environment. Hawaii is an island state and the environment is very fragile. Protecting the eco-system so our main export, Tourism, can thrive. Being elected to the State Board of Education also opened my eyes to the education our children are receiving in our public schools. Will they be able to keep up in this 21st century. Teaching is my passion, but I feel I have an obligation to be a lawmaker so I can help contribute solutions."
