Hawaii Kai Neighborhood Board No. 1

AT-LARGE (4 Seats available)


A retired teacher & therapist, I have lived in Hawaii Kai 28yrs. Concerns about development, open spaces, traffic & safety led to getting involved. The NB is a means of facilitating communication between residents & government agencies & officials. After 21/2 terms, I now better understand how the varied agencies interact & how best to present community wishes & concerns. May I continue?


IWASA, Natalie

Aloha Neighbors!  Many people know me as Bike Mom, but I have been active with many other issues as well as those related to bicycling.  I share concerns people have with preserving our open space, stockpiling of debris in Kamilonui Valley and the horrendous state of our roadways.  I am a CPA, wife and proud mother of two boys and would like to continue serving you as a member of the HKNB.


It's been my privilege to serve on the Hawaii Kai Neighborhood Board since 2001 and as Chair since 2007. I'm working to limit development, promote quality education, improve traffic, protect our environment and scenic treasures, and build community pride. Former DOE communications director (1993-2008), and State House candidate (2000). University of Hawaii, MA-Communications. Mahalo for your vote!

GREY, Marian J.

I've enjoyed serving on Board and would like to continue. Local government is best when it hears its citizens, and that is what happens at our Neighborhood Bd. Elected Officials or their representatives' listen to those they govern. In East Oahu, there's a threat of development and zone changes that could forever change our neighborhood. I want to support preserving open land.
