Martinez's professional experience includes working as a community organizer, a legislative policy analyst, educator, and member of the West-Oahu City Council.
Martinez's website has emphasized the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "I will work to bring the city to agree to a long-term 25 year waste management master plan. The plan should include creating greater incentives to encourage our citizens to recycle in greater quantities."
- Excerpt: "I would favor greater enforcement of this industry given the excessive number of illegal bed and breakfast units throughout our county. Although this is a viable industry, the lack of enforcement has created a significant degree of hardships on various communities."
- Excerpt: "Although the recent change of leadership in the U.S House of Representatives will make federal funding more of a challenge, I am confident that through the continuing leadership of Senators Akaka and Inouye, that our county will get its fair share of federal funds for this project."
- Excerpt: "As your councilmember I will work closely with the newly formed Office of Housing which would help assist in the formulation and execution of policies that would alleviate the homeless situation in West-Oahu and elsewhere in the county."
- Excerpt: "I supported the change of making the Liquor Commission Administrator an appointed position which gave the commission the authority to install and dismiss the administrator. This will bring comprehensive oversight and accountability to the liquor commission."
Economy & Jobs
- Excerpt: "I would not support any increase in real property taxes but am open to increasing user fees for services that are currently being provided at nominal rates, in particular, to non-resident users."
- Excerpt: "The county should tighten the regulations so that we can ensure that agricultural lands are used for their intended purpose as opposed to 'gentlemen farms.' I am in strong support of creating incentives and legislative protections that preserve agricultural lands for agricultural purposes."
Community Building & West-Oahu
- Excerpt: "While the West-Oahu community is faced with a great variety of issues that are of equal importance, we should be focusing on responsible development of the Secondary Urban Core. Proper infrastructure must be in place while bringing jobs and economic development along the transit corridor."
