Public Safety tops the list of concerns of District 9 residents.
Augie will work with other Council-members, Chief Ballard and the new Mayor to increase the number of patrol beats in each of the 3 Police Districts in City Council District 9. More Officers on the street will be a deterrent to all crime but in particular to crimes of opportunity.
Also we must be able to keep the Officers that we train here in HAWAII. Competitive salaries and benefits will be a budget priority for our men and women in Blue.
As your Council member Augie will be tasked with no greater responsibility than keeping your family safe.
Quality Of Life
Your daily quality of life is important to me…
Vehicular traffic delays within District 9 can be better managed. From improving traffic congestion near some of our schools, to actually eliminating your need to travel to Honolulu Hale are examples of how I hope to begin to lesson the stress of moving about our community.
We have intersections that have outgrown their original design function and need to be improved.
As your Council-member I will be working to establish a District Office in Waipahu. This will allow D9 residents to meet with me and my staff in District and will eliminate a round trip to downtown and the hassle of parking at Honolulu Hale.
