WE APOLOGIZE IF WE FORGOT TO THANK YOU. PLEASE KNOW THAT YOUR HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED.
My wife, Carolyn, and I lived on the Waianae Coast for more than 20 years. As an activist at our state Capitol since 1980, I know state Rep. Maile Shimabukuro (Waianae/Makaha/Makua) has done a great job for us because I've worked with her on many issues facing the Waianae Coast and all Hawaii nei for the past six years.
I know for a fact when it comes to education Maile has been at the forefront. She has also done much to help to house the homeless and low income residents on the West side; has been actively involved in helping our na keiki, na kupuna, and native Hawaiians at the state Capitol and in Waianae; and has been active in helping many nonprofits in Waianae to help our kids become hardworking, productive, taxpaying citizens. I love this young lady because she has a great heart, she's sincere and she really cares about us and Waianae.
Please join Carolyn and me in voting for Maile on Election Day. After all, Maile is no ka oi, don't you agree?

REPRESENTATIVE MAILE SHIMABUKURO, DISTRCIT 45
My wife Carolyn and I lived on the Wai'anae Coast from 1986 to 2006, moving to Honolulu for two years and returning to Wai'anae on June 15, 2008. As an activist at our state capitol since 1980, I know Maile has done a great job for us because I've worked with her on many issues facing the Wai'anae Coast and all Hawaii nei for the past six years.
Maile has also done much for housing the homeless/low income residents on the West side at Kahikolu Ohana Hale O Waianae ($500K Op funds; $1M CIP); Habitat for Humanity grant-in-aids; Ohana Ola O Kahumanu: Rent Supplement Program. In Transportation Maile fought for needed funds ($2M) for turn lanes at Nanakuli and Haeakala Ave which will help to prevent accidents. Jobs for our young people have been a constant problem so Maile fought for and obtained grant-in-aid for the Wai'anae Maritime Academy. According to the news media the WMA and its founders do a lot for the kids in Wai'anae, training them to be constructive, productive, tax-paying citizens eventually making a contribution to their communities. MA'O Organic Farm Internship Program with LCC ($75K). Again Maile's hard work in support of this important non-profit is well known through the news media.
I could go on and on but let me close with these facts; Maile has worked hard in Human Services to help the disabled, na kupuna, na keiki, the disadvantaged, native Hawaiian's etc., etc. I personally appreciate Maile's efforts because I am a multi-disabled person, a kupuna, and native Hawaiian raised in Hawaiian Homesteads. I feel our District 45 is fortunate to have Maile Shimabukuro representing us at our state capitol. Please join Carolyn and I in voting for, and sending Maile back to our state capitol. After all Maile is no ka 'oi, don't you agree?

"It's obvious to anyone if you just drive down Farrington highway or if you live here how much this project is desperately needed," said Rep. Maile Shimabukuro, (D) Waianae.
It's the third facility opened under an emergency declaration by the governor. The first of three being built on the Leeward coast.
"[The declaration] allowed us to seek funds that otherwise would not have been available," says Russ Saito, State Coordinator of Homelessness.
[It also allowed] the shelter to be built while bypassing various codes and zoning restrictions.
"This project really couldn't have come any sooner," says Shimabukuro. "The emergency shelters are all brimming at the seams."
The shelter is opening just as the city begins more overnight park closures. It's the first step to getting homeless off the beach and into a home.
"Whether its drug and alcohol treatment, mental health treatment, job training, all those things will be combined to help these families transition," says Shimabukuro. "And to really combat this homeless crisis we see on the Wai`anae coast."

Am sad to report the very unexpected and untimely death of Katy Kok. She passed away suddenly in her home on Tuesday.
Her sister, Lori Gossard, is staying at Katy's home and is currently arranging a memorial service. She's looking at sometime in the first full week of September at one of the beach parks. She has promised to let me know so I can try to get the word out via Westside Stories and/or e-mail.
* Per Hans Kok on 9/25 11 am, the family will not put ANYTHING into our newspaper.
Without a doubt, Nani O Waianae and the greater Wai'anae Coast community has lost a great advocate, leader, and friend to the environment
Please share this info with all your contacts and keep Katy's family in your thoughts and prayers through this difficult time.
