and handled the most serious of criminal charges from robbery, sexual assaults, and murder. 

I am the only candidate who has spent their entire career trying to transform a punitive system into one that recognizes that people are more than their worst acts;

I am the only candidate who has spent their career fighting to get treatment for our mentally ill and those with substance abuse disorders;

I am the only candidate who has spent their career fighting to end the injustice

of our cash bail system;

We can transform our criminal justice system.

We can give crime victims a voice.

We can heal the harm crime causes.

We can end the chronic overrepresentation of Native Hawaiians in our criminal justice system.

We can restore trust in the Office of the Prosecuting Attorney.

But to do it, we need to start electing different people to the office.

It is my life journey.  Join me.

Our criminal justice system needs to be reformed because it’s wasting money, it’s wasting lives, it has broken the trust of our community and I am committed to changing that.

As a public defender, I have worked in every division of the office - appellate advocacy, juvenile advocacy, civil commitment advocacy, treatment courts, and misdemeanor and felony jury trials.  I have represented over 1,000 clients
