Why I'm Running
Ashley was elected to serve on the Hawai'i County Council in 2018. She is providing effective leadership when we need it the most.
Ashley is born, raised and educated on Hawai‘i Island, so she is a product of our community. Now that she and her partner are raising their two children in Hawaiian Paradise Park, Ashley wants to put her community-driven and small business experience to work to uplift Puna, our island and its people.
Ashley's already working to make a difference. She worked alongside Ikaika Marzo and others to start Pu‘uhonua o Puna Info & Supply Hub. She'd bring this grassroots style of leadership to County government.
With the future of Puna on the line, the district needs a representative who can revitalize the community with vision and vitality. We need someone who can build bridges and bring people together so Puna can finally get its fair share of resources and services. We can no longer wait. We need things FOR Puna, IN Puna.
As we move forward into the future, we need a representative who is lifted in spirit by opportunities, not worn down by issues.
A new generation of leadership is rising. Ashley is a bright, energetic and inclusive leader who will work with community to foster rewarding opportunities to learn, work and create close to home, while keeping our island a special place.
