Wahiawa is a very special place. The people are the best and the weather is great. We can all be proud to be from Wahiawa. It is an old town and has a number of needs both in its infrastructure and in modernizing our town facilities. We must work with the State, City and County to fix our roads and to improve our park for events like the Pineapple Festival.


TERRY, Mark D.

I have lived in Hawaii for 21 years.  I have served on two neighborhood boards.  On one board, I served as Vice Chairman and later as Chairman.  I believe the neighborhood boards serve a very useful function in speaking for the public to the elected officials.


TOYAMA, Christopher A.

I feel that I am qualified for this position because I am a very passionate and outspoken person. I am a competent communicator and a confident public speaker. I am currently a member of Global Messengers for Special Olympics Toastmasters which is a program that helps to increase your self-confidence, to become a better speaker, to become a better leader, and to communicate more effectively.
