What is Important to You?

If you live in the Mililani community, you will be receiving my legislative survey in the mail soon. The 2016 survey focuses on key issues that are currently being discussed or that have the potential to be discussed during the 2016 legislative session. Survey topics include such issues as mandatory vaccinations, daily fantasy sports contests, tax increases including the GET, and increased gun regulations.

This survey is very important because it helps me know your thoughts and concerns about a wide range of issues. Please help me represent your voice in the Legislature by taking a moment to fill out the survey and sending it back to me. You can also e-mail your responses at

I look forward to hearing from you!
