Aloha mai!

Did you know the average family in Hawaiʻi spends about $650 in taxes for food alone? Imagine what you could do with an extra $650 a year. Your Republican representatives are creating a bill package that strives to make our government and our state more accountable, affordable, and accessible.

Please join us on Thursday, November 2nd!

We aspire to provide Better Solutions for the Best Hawaiʻi. For more information on our proposed bills, please view our website at, download our info sheet (link at the bottom), and view our second video titled: "Stop Taxing Life" (scroll up).
But we cannot do this alone, we need your help! If you can use some extra savings and believe food should be tax free, call your legislators and tell them to hear this bill. Making Hawaiʻi more affordable for our local families is our priority. And when session begins, I look forward to seeing you at the legislature testifying in support. Let's make our voices heard!
