My name is Julia Avilla LoPresti. I am a public school teacher, a mother of two, and I am married to an incredibly hard-working guy named Matt. My Husband is running for re-election to represent our community and our families in the Hawaii State Legislature.
I am proud of my roots as a fourth-generation Filipina-American. As a local girl, raised by my wonderful grandparents and extended family who live in Ewa Beach, Aiea, and Waimalu, I was brought up to respect family traditions, education, and the blending of cultures. Most importantly I was raised to have a hard work ethic, to be a responsible citizen, and to honor the place we are blessed to call home.
I married Matt ten years ago because I knew then that he had all the qualities that my family instilled in me. He has the compassion, work ethic, and deep respect for the unique culture we share here in Hawaii. As partners, educators, and parents, Matt and I are realizing the tremendous efforts it takes for working families to live and thrive in the place we call home. Our hope is to build a bright future for all our families so that the values we cherish are honored and we are able to lead the next generation into a hopeful tomorrow.
Please join me in supporting Matt for re-election. Ewa Beach must continue to have leadership with integrity and determination and I know Matt puts our community’s needs first because he is always thinking of our families first.
