Kymberly Pine Announces Run for Honolulu City Council District 1, Leeward Coast

News Release from Pine for Council

HONOLULU – Hawaii State Representative Kymberly Pine today announced her candidacy for the Honolulu City Council District 1 (Leeward Coast) seat in the 2012 election. She currently serves as the State Representative of Ewa Beach, District 43.

“The people of Ewa Beach and I have worked hard to dramatically improve our community.” she said. “We’ve accomplished many things together and I am excited about the opportunity to share our successes with the entire Leeward Coast as the District 1 councilmember.”

Kymberly has a leadership record focused on direct results. She was first motivated to run for office after seeing her Ewa Beach community neglected in the areas of traffic relief, school funding and crime.

She pledged to ensure that state government would no longer leave Ewa Beach behind. During her four terms as state representative, her district has received over $600 million for new roads, schools, and many other projects that benefited her community. Crime has also decreased and pro-victim laws were also passed.

“Eight years ago, our parks and beaches were dumping grounds and no one was helping us with this problem,” she said. “My goal was to unite the community to change this, and to get the respect for the community that it deserves. I am proud of the people of Ewa Beach who helped to move us toward the goal of making it the beautiful community it deserves to be. I want to inspire the same momentum throughout the Leeward Coast.” http://the.honoluluadvertiser.com/article/2004/Apr/18/ln/ln07a.html

As councilwoman, she will continue to focus on bringing good jobs to the Leeward Coast, as she has done in supporting the development of UH West Oahu, the Kroc Center in Ewa Beach, new shopping centers and Aulani Disney Hotel. She will also continue to work on easing traffic congestion, ensuring easy access to community healthcare and lowering the cost of living and doing business on Oahu. Recently, she has played a key role in working with doctors at the Hawaii Medical Center site to increase their services and opening an Urgent Care Center.

“The Leeward Coast has been reinventing itself for many years, but I believe our best days are ahead of us,” says Kymberly. “Residents have a right to effective leadership and improvements that respect our way of life. I’ll continue to take to heart what residents tell me about the everyday issues they face.”

Kymberly has 14 years of experience working for the people of Hawaii at the State Capitol. As Director of the Minority Research Office in the State House of Representatives, she ran a team focused on finding waste and mismanagement in government spending and creating new solutions to Hawaii's problems as the author of the $600 Million Waste and Mismanagement Report. She has worked for over six years at U.S.VETS - HAWAII, a home for former homeless veterans and was a member of the State Housing Committee that implemented sweeping improvements in homeless services. Kymberly has been a victim advocate for 15 years and is now Hawaii's leading expert in cyber crime law. She is the former chair of the Ewa Weed and Seed’s Beautification Committee.
