Campaign themes


Capelouto's campaign website listed the following issues:[3]

  • Repeal the 12.5% Rail Tax Increase
Excerpt: "We can put nearly $1,000 per year back into each family's pocketbook while ending the farce that the wasteful rail boondoggle will speed up traffic for West Oahu residents."
  • Cut Electricity Bills Through Expediting Solar
Excerpt: "Another big solution which will put thousands of dollars per year back in each family's pocketbook is by having our government issue bonds to finance modern solar energy systems for every home statewide. Homeowners will be able to pay for these solar installations through their property taxes over ten years rather than continuing to opt out of the solar revolution due to the high upfront costs."
  • Create Sales Tax Holidays for Consumers
Excerpt: "To boost the economy and help working families, I would like to establish regular sales tax holidays throughout the year, such as 'back-to-school' season when families need to stock up on school supplies, purchase new clothes and other goods and services related to education. Seventeen other states see the wisdom of establishing tax holidays, especially to spur economic activity before school starts in the fall."
  • Restore Cut Funding to School Buses
Excerpt: "The same politicians and bureaucrats who refuse to misdirect precious education funds to the bloated DOE bureaucracy rather than making sure our tax dollars reach schools have now cut the funding for school buses which take kids to/from our public schools. It's just another example of mismanagement and skewed priorities."
  • Reform Public Education Through Needed Innovation
Excerpt: "Public schools in Hawaii shortchange island students year after year, denying them the quality of learning and achievement despite the billions and billions spent by taxpayers on our public education system. State government's failures are too many to count. To fix these failures, teachers unions and misguided politicians must stop pretending higher taxes and more spending are silver bullets."
