Campaign themes


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

  • Schools
Excerpt: "To improve our schools, teachers need to be rewarded for what they do in their classrooms and schools. ...Next, our state needs to create a comprehensive system for our keiki to attend preschool. ...Finally, our goal as educators should not be students who are proficient test takers, but students who test the limits of creativity and innovation."
  • Safety
Excerpt: "To keep our neighborhoods safe, brave residents are creating neighborhood watches. I will work hard to encourage this practice and make it as easy as possible by connecting HPD officers to those residents interested in starting their own neighborhood watch."
  • Seniors
Excerpt: "We need to be gearing our services to allow seniors to 'age in place' in their own homes, where they prefer to be. As opposed to servicing a small number of seniors in live-in facilities with round the clock care, we should be moving toward mobile care teams who can visit a larger number of folks."

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Hawaii scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
