Above: Ground-breaking dedication held this past Saturday, Dec. 19th for the Kaiaulu o Kupuohi rental apartment complex, which was approved by my Affordable Housing Committee.

I led the effort that resulted in Council-granted approvals of housing projects that will produce 477 housing units. Most of these units will be rentals for households that are 60% of the area median income ($58,500) – the group with the greatest need for affordable housing.
