Campaign themes


Ichiyama's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

  • Education
Excerpt: "Investing in our children is an investment in the future and we are all committed to making sure that our students and schools are successful. But such investment and commitment cannot happen without proper resources, and current funding levels are threatening to undermine the quality of education for our keiki."
  • Economy
Excerpt: "Our state is facing a tough economic situation, with many people worrying about how they can afford to keep their homes and care for their families. We need new ideas and fresh perspectives to find ways to balance our state budget. I believe that recovery and prosperity are within our reach, as long as we remain focused on long term economic growth and investing in our future."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "Quality health care should be affordable and accessible to all. Our community is home to some of the finest hospitals and clinics in the State and people come to Moanalua and Salt Lake to receive quality care from trusted professionals. We too should be able to benefit from the top-notch health care available right down the street."
  • Environment
Excerpt: "Our environment provides ample and under-utilized opportunities for sustainable agriculture and renewable energy sources. Future generations deserve to enjoy the same Hawaii that we do without the burden of oil costs to ship food from outside the State and to power their daily lives."
  • Crime/Public Safety
Excerpt: "Property crime and vandalism are on the rise, and heavy traffic through our neighborhoods poses a serious risk to pedestrians including seniors and school children. We must work as a community to make our streets safer, for the benefit of our families and neighbors."

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Hawaii scorecards, email suggestions to
