Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Au's campaign website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Education Reform
Excerpt: "The State must strive to devote a higher percentage of your educational tax dollars toward classroom learning. I am convinced that such a focus will allow qualified teachers to do their jobs well and work as mentors to meet student needs."
  • Job Creation
Excerpt: "Small businesses need lower tax burdens, less intrusive regulations, and policies that encourage the entrepreneurial spirit. I recognize that when local companies have a stronger bottom line, they can invest in growing their businesses—which leads to increased employment."
  • Grow Tourism
Excerpt: "China has a growing economy. Hawaii’s geographic location makes it an attractive destination for China’s increasingly wealthier recreational and business travelers. I have a thorough understanding of Asian cultures, and, if elected, I will be one of the few legislators in the House of Representatives who can speak Chinese."
  • Improve Quality of Life
Excerpt: "After decades of attempts, District 26 is beginning to show its potential as a unique and diverse urban area—one that can be the pride of Honolulu and of Hawaii. The Hawaii Community Development Authority (HCDA), the state agency that has planning, zoning, and approval authority for Kaka’ako, has as its vision a “Live, Work and Play” community. I accept that vision, but as Representative I will work toward a parallel vision of “Enjoy, Thrive and Stay” community, which begins with improving our quality of life."
