Kalani English (Dist. 7 – East and Upcountry Maui, Lana‘i, Moloka‘i). “We are working under the theme ‘Malama No Ke Ola Pono’, which means ‘creating a better life.’ As we move forward this session, we will be mindful of the options in which we can improve our livelihood and the well-being of our State.”

The Hawai‘i Senate Majority has adopted four priorities,  Malama ‘Ohana (Providing for our Families), Malama Honua (Nurturing the Earth), Malama Kaiaulu (Sustaining our Communities), and Malama Aupuni (Good Governance), for legislation that embrace Hawaiian values and aim to improve the quality of life for our keiki, kupuna, and na ‘Ohana who are most in need.
