Issues

Campaign themes

2012

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

  • "[P]reserving and protecting our Ohana/Keiki"
Excerpt: "The rise of crime (burglary, theft), homelessness, prostitution, drug use, strip clubs & desiring "Gambling" for Waikiki (Big Las Vegas type Gambling)-- in the past few years are all examples of the how the current legislators are leading Hawaii in the wrong direction (my opponent Tom Brower is very much for legalizing Casino Gambling for Waikiki. Yes, we all want more revenue coming into our state but at what expense to our Ohana & Keiki?"
  • "[F]ighting hard to put money back into our citizens pockets by endorsing legislation that promotes economic growth"
Excerpt: "With the budget gap continuing to grow, it is important now more than ever, that Hawaii votes for a candidate like Dr. Hester that will bring back the 'balance of power' and ensure that taxpayer’s hard-earned monies are being accounted for. We must lower our personal, corporate, excise tax, & payroll taxes - that will then stimulate growth for our entire economy."
