County Councilmember Seeking 3rd Consecutive Term
Aloha! I’m KipuKai Kuali`i & I’m running for re-election to my 3rd consecutive term on the Kaua`i County Council.
I was born & raised on Kaua`i from KipuKai Ranch to Waimea Dairy to Hanamaulu Low-Income Housing to Old Puhi Plantation Camp. I was an honors student at Immaculate Conception School in Lihu`e, at Kamehameha Junior & High School in Honolulu & then at the University of the Pacific in CA where I got my bachelor’s in Business Admin.
I have over thirty years’ experience working and volunteering in Govt, Labor Unions, Non-Profits & Community Organizations. Ten of those years were spent in California and Washington DC before returning home in 2001 to be closer to my aging parents and to work with my siblings for all of us to pursue Hawaiian homeland awards.
I work part-time as the Director of Operations at the YWCA of Kaua`i and I’m a volunteer leader in my homestead of Anahola where I’ve been able to help bring about numerous community economic development projects such as a certified kitchen, campground, marketplace and solar farm. Our newest project is a sports complex to support a local recreation economy.
As a Kaua`i County Councilmember for 3 of the last 4 terms, I’ve proven myself to be hardworking, thoughtful and trustworthy. I’ve also demonstrated my dedication to public service, my legislative policy experience, my strength with budgeting, my understanding of the issues and my commitment to always doing my homework, listening carefully and working collaboratively.
I'm humbly asking for one of your seven votes in the upcoming election. Also, as I'm reaching out to folks to learn about their concerns, as well as their ideas for making our County work better; I'm humbly asking also that you contact me at (808) 652-3684 or firstname.lastname@example.org or PO Box 30910, Anahola, HI 96703.
