Take Part in Something Great
Dave's Success as a Community Leader
Spearheaded the grassroots movement to halt the Ala Wai Flood Mitigation Project
Demanded the state and the federal government to reassess the EIS
Studied, researched, testified, and informed stakeholders affected by the proposed plan
In doing so, he protected schools like Hokulani Elementary, Halau Ku Mana, trees, rivers parks and residents in valleys
Dave would attend the 7 monthly neighborhood board meetings to inform and update the community about the Project.
Every meeting for each of the neighborhoods, he learned about the issues and the concerns residents had in that area.
Dave started getting involved in other issues because he understood those community concerns and wanted to help fight for those too.
Councilwoman Ann Kobayashi saw him at all the 7 monthly neighborhood board meetings,
She saw his dedication and commitment and knew he has what it takes to lead, honestly, and work hard.
