Campaign website
Dave Bateman is a 2014 Republican candidate for District 5 of the Hawaii House of Representatives. He ran unsuccessfully for the same seat in 2012.


Campaign themes


Bateman's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]


  • Excerpt: "Hawaii has not figured out how to create sustainable agriculture, to feed its people, supply its grocery stores and hotels and restaurants. I have a plan to do just that."

Cost Of Living

  • Excerpt: "Improve transmission lines to populated areas. Look at your monthly energy bill and cut it in half for your estimated monthly savings."


  • Excerpt: "Decoupling energy costs from oil costs is being implemented by HELCO for purchase of power from the PVN geothermal plant in Puna, and should help our rates to trend downward somewhat. At least the electricity portion of these costs should be converted to renewable energy sources such as solar, geothermal and wind. "

Business And Government Burdens And Expenses

  • Excerpt: "We need a government that says 'yes' to our requests to do business or build a project. We seek the government's help not hindrance. We are tire of a negative government telling us 'no, you can't do that' with no good reason. We want a supportive positive government that says 'Can' rather than 'No Can.'"


  • Excerpt: "I believe that with some basic structural and internal changes in the DOE, our students can become competitive academically. Education is a very personal, complex and multifaceted undertaking. We must consider the special needs of our children, individual family circumstances, the diverse cultures of our students and our economy."
