Why Paikai for OHA?

“About my run for office in 2014…

Yeah, I’ve had people ask, ‘Why OHA? What was that about?’ (Because inquiring minds want to know, as the famous saying goes.)

I really think it was a combination of things that were happening back in 2014 and leading up to that election. I can’t really pinpoint exactly what it was that really pushed me over the edge, but I can say that there were a lot of things happening within the Hawaiian community, in general, that I saw needed to be changed.

So I thought, ‘I’ll put my name in the hat and see where I land,’ because I really felt that in order for me to talk about change, and talk about people wanting to change, I had to at first become the change.

So as cliche as that sounds, I moved forward with being the change that I wanted to see.”
