Thank you so much for visiting my website. I hope that it gives you a glimpse into my heart and soul and what is important to me which is caring for our Community and our People.
A prominent member of our community, Mr. Clyde Imada (rest in love) many years ago tapped me on the shoulders and said, "Dominic, it is time that you start thinking about running for political office." I told him no, I'm not a politician. He then said something that planted a seed that changed my life forever. Mr. Imada said, "Dominic, there is going to come a time when it will not be your choice, but your RESPONSIBILITY." He was right. I did run for office and was so honored and fortunate to be elected six (6) times and serve for 12 years as your County Councilmember for Council District 1.
COVID-19 and the immense challenges it brings motivated so many people in our community to encourage me to seek the office of Councilmember once again. At this moment and time in history, I again feel that it is not my choice, but my RESPONSIBILITY. Our beloved Hawaii Island is struggling and people are suffering with this economic and health crisis. Our current County Council remains intact, with two new members to be added to the nine (9) member Council team. Together along with either Mitch Roth or Ikaika Marzo, we will be a team that works together to meet and overcome the challenges of COVID-19. I truly believe that my business and government expertise will bring a strong, stable voice to the table and blend well with the already bright minds on the County Council.
I humbly ask for your vote and support for my bid to serve as your County Councilmember. Together, we will get it done.
Always With Aloha - Dom
