People are often asking as to “my availability”.
Bottom line: If I can help, do not hesitate to call.
I am available to meet informally with any individual, anywhere in the state of Hawaii, who is considering running for public office AND who has roots in their community, AND who shares my core values of putting people and the planet first.
It goes without saying also, that I am willing to meet with any County, State or Federal – legislator, administrator or staff person – if they believe I can add value to the work they are doing.
I am also available to meet and consult as a volunteer, with any organization that would like to discuss legislative strategy pertaining to environmental, economic or social justice issues. If your organization needs ongoing support with government affairs, legislative and political strategy or other “on the ground political or legislative advice”, please also do not hesitate to call.
In conjunction with the Hawaii Alliance for Progressive Action (HAPA) and in collaboration with other community partners – I/we are available to conduct “advocacy training” to groups of 20 or more.
I enjoy tremendously, speaking to students and community groups (large or small) on the importance of civic engagement via an “insiders view” on the legislative process.
While my home is on Kauai, I travel weekly to Oahu and frequently to Maui and Hawaii County as well.
Bottom line: If the mission and goals of your organization or effort are in alignment with mine – I am there to help and support, so do not hesitate to call or email.
