My name is Matt LoPresti and I humbly ask to continue to serve you in the Hawaii State House of Representatives. What makes me qualified to be your representative in the State House? Honesty, integrity, and effective leadership.
I pledge to work harder, smarter, and more ethically for our families, schools, kupuna, and keiki. Your priories are my priorities, because the job is to represent you – not a political party and certainly not some personal agenda. It’s time we had a representative who knows that true leadership means putting other people’s needs before their own.
My platform covers five of the most important and long-standing issues facing the people of ‘Ewa and ‘Ewa Beach:
(1) Securing Quality Education and resources (like A/C and a second High School) for our keiki.
(2) Addressing Traffic as the number one quality of life issue.
(3) Ensuring that Quality Jobs & Affordable Housing are available for our working families.
(4) Supporting our kupuna with appropriate healthcare services and the ability to age in place.
(5) Protecting and preserving Hawaii’s natural beauty and resources (like ‘Ewa’s reefs, Limu and fishing grounds) for future generations
In addition to these vital issues, we need someone representing us who will be responsive to constituent needs and on top of important votes and debates that effect our families and our community. I have been and will continue to work with other lawmakers to grow better, higher-paying local jobs in Leeward Oahu for Leeward residents. Government services and infrastructure must keep pace with our astronomical growth in ‘Ewa and this can help alleviate our choking traffic as well. I will fight to maintain essential services to ensure the health and safety of our community, such as Queen’s Medical Center West and ensure that police, fire, and emergency vehicle protections keep pace with the fastest growing community in the state.
In my time serving on the neighborhood board I successfully fought to bring The Bus service to the Ocean Pointe Community and brought about an increase in Police patrols to Hau Bush and ‘Ewa Beach. I have a strong record as a community advocate fighting to save taxpayer dollars and provide greater services where they are needed.
I am deeply honored by the growing variety and depth of endorsements from teachers, law enforcement, labor, government workers, business leaders, and social and environmental justice organizations. I will continue to provide a strong voice for you, your family, our kupuna, and our keiki. I humbly ask for your support to continue working to improve the quality of life in ‘Ewa and build the foundations for a vibrant and sustainable community for future generations.
Please remember that all the endorsements in the world don’t mean a thing without your vote. Vote for leadership with integrity.
Vote LoPresti on, Tuesday, November 8th, 2016.
