LETTER: Lisa Gapero, Running for Wailuku Council Seat
By Lisa Gapero, candidate for County Council, Wailuku seat
My name is Lisa Gapero. I live in Waiehu Kou II in Wailuku. I am running for Maui County Council -Wailuku seat.
I have a question for you….Are you better off today than you were 2 years ago?
The last few years, we have seen prices on everything go up- each and every one of us is struggling to make ends meet. We cannot afford anymore tax or rate increases.
I ran for County Council two years ago with some of the same struggles but now these struggles have increased.
I support small businesses on Maui and encourage job creation by getting the over regulation out of the way. We need to nurture our home grown businesses and enable Maui to get to work while at the same time explore renewable energy options.
We need new human energy in the County Council!
I want to be your voice. Together we will lead, inspire, discover, influence, formulate, tear down and build up. I am a fiscally responsible business person. Our county has a spending problem – that’s our problem. I recommend reining in spending.
I want you to join me in this undertaking–the current climate requires a new type of representation: a council woman with vision, who can develop strategies, drive tactical implementation and produce results.
What is needed are skills and perspective to make sense of the fast-changing world, plan under uncertainty, recognize market-business opportunities for job growth, view expenditures through the lens of the stakeholder-YOU, Maui, let’s shape sound governance policies, and ensure continued effective representation.
My name is Lisa Gapero. I understand this leadership role and propose innovative change without the intimidation of the past. I would very much appreciate your support in this election. Mahalo.
