We must take bolder steps if we want to improve the future of our Islands.

“To face our challenges, overcome our problems, and seize our opportunities, we need to acknowledge that many of our current approaches are not working anymore.

We need an economy where growth for a privileged few is not enough. We need homes our local families can afford. We need more and better jobs in more than one industry. We need to support our rich and diverse communities. We need to take bold steps, commit ourselves, and not flinch when we encounter obstacles in taking those steps.

We need to provide more authority and autonomy to our counties, while centralizing responsibility and accountability for those things that need to be addressed statewide. We need the mayors and the governor and the legislature working together with greater coordination and synergy.

Most of all, we need to focus more on our people. Not just the outputs of government programs and policies, but actual outcomes of making life better for our citizens. I fear we are falling short and further and further behind. But together, we can change that course. As your governor, I will dedicate myself to championing those changes, taking those bold steps, and improving the lives of people throughout Hawai‘i.”
