KipuKai L P KUALI`I for Kaua`i County Council

KipuKai KUALI`I,

Former Councilmember County Council Candidate     

KipuKai KUALI`I has filed his papers and is announcing his candidacy for County Council.  “My hope is to get back to the job of making our County work better for our people and for our islands.  For me, the most important part of that job is making sure our County leaders are held accountable on budgeting priorities, limiting taxes and providing core services efficiently including public safety (police, fire & rescue) and public works (roads, parks, sewage treatment, solid waste & water).”


With his background and experience of over 30 years in Government, Non-Profit and Community organizing, KUALI`I promises to bring a diversified viewpoint, strong financial background, Hawaiian values and a calm productive energy.  He says he’ll bring an experienced, level-headed, positive approach to collaborating with both public & private partners to develop and implement forward-thinking solutions to our County’s challenges.


“Our growing families need affordable housing for both homes and rentals.  In my work with the Anahola Hawaiian Homes Association and the Homestead Housing Authority, I’ve been part of a Tiny Homes Project which is destined to bring about affordable housing options for many in Hawaiian homestead communities and elsewhere.  My commitment is to working with the Mayor, our County Housing Agency, landowners and other community partners to put forward tax and land use incentives for the accelerated building of a lot more affordable housing.”


As a once-appointed, once-elected former Councilmember, KUALI`I wants to extend his deepest gratitude (“mahalo nui loa”) to all those who have supported him in his life of public service so far.  “I’m confident that most have seen the kind of thoughtful, genuine and hardworking community leader I am.  And, that I’m a fighter who doesn’t give up and won’t hesitate to speak up; always working my hardest to make a difference; especially on fiscal matters.”


KUALI`I currently serves as the Director of Operations at the YWCA of Kaua`i.  He also serves on numerous boards including the Anahola Hawaiian Homes Association, the Homestead Community Development Corporation, the Homestead Housing Authority, the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement, Hawaiian Community Assets and the Kaua`i North Shore Community Foundation; as well as the Governor’s Policy Advisory Board for Elder Affairs, the Mayor’s Elderly Affairs Advisory Council and the Council’s Affordable Housing Advisory Committee.


KUALI`I states his campaign is reaching out to folks to learn about their concerns, as well as their ideas for making our County work better.  He asks that you contact him at (808) 652-3684, or PO Box 30910, Anahola, HI 96703.
