Candidate for County Council
GABE JOHNSON WILL REPRESENT YOU
Independent and Transparent
“GOOD PAYING JOBS”
I believe in the Fight for Fifteen. While increasing the minimum wage is only one tool in the toolbox we must also address the housing crisis. Too much of the workers’ incomes are going to mortgages and rents which in turn makes families cut their food bills. This is unacceptable in a State that made $1.1Billion in for the first 6 months of 2016 from Japanese Tourists alone!
“IN A CLEAN ENVIRONMENT”
Healthy Lands make for healthy people. My career is in Invasive Species. I do as much as I can to protect the island of Lana’i. The County is responsible for keeping our lands clean and free of pollution.
“WITH A HEALTHY ECONOMY”
We have so many paths to a robust economy besides more of the Tourism based model. I believe locally grown food and a farm to table model would help us be less dependant upon mainland barges. Goods, services, and food should be created and consumed here in our islands. I’m a strong proponent of the tech industry as well. Light footprint economies should be our focus.
