Shane Sinenci is the current Chair of the Agriculture and Public Trust Committee. His work includes the water-use planning and development of our local water resources for Maui County, for the next 30 years. E 'Ola I Ka Wai!
I introduced a bill prohibiting single-use plastic foodware. We had opposition from the plastic industry who said there were no affordable or workable options, but the ban went into effect effortlessly and proving that we can do more to protect the environment and sea life from plastic pollution.
I introduced one of the strongest public lands organic policy in the nation. Starting next year, chemical pesticides and fertilizers will no longer be used in parks where children play and at beaches where our visitors sunbathe.
I introduced a charter amendment to create the first-ever County Department of Agriculture. The department will build a regional agriculture system focused on boosting the island's food security through sustainable agriculture practices.
Maui County boasts one of the lowest residential tax rates in the nation. Tax fairness ensures that all stakeholders pay their fair share toward infrastructure maintenance.
Our natural environment is one of our greatest resources. It is critical that we invest in the protection of it, including maintaining open spaces for the general public.
