Lorraine understands the need to assist farmers, including chickens, dairy, piggeries, coffee, macadamia nuts, and other forms of farming. She will listen to ideas and work with them to find solutions to keep them farming to obtain sustainable agriculture.
Housing for elderly and low income families
Lorraine has and will work with the government to fund loans and grants to build senior living centers and facilities. She works with nonprofits to build living facilities. She deeply cares about the well being of our kupunas and wants them to be well provided for.
Create jobs to keep graduates from leaving Hawaii
Lorraine believes we must create jobs so that our college graduates can remain in Hawaii after they graduate. We must have sustainable agriculture to provide jobs, assist small businesses, and look after the sustainability of our island. Lorraine has created hundreds of jobs for people in Hilo.
Education for kids and money for teachers
There always seems to be a shortage of funding for schools, supplies, and teachers. Teachers are spending their own money out of pocket to fund necessary expenses, which reduces their own income. We need safe schools with air conditioning and computers. We need a school system that provides outstanding education for our kids. "Where's The Money, DOE? It is difficult to recall a time when Hawaii's public schools have not been a major concern to citizens. Poor text scores, aging facilities, overheated classrooms, teacher vacancies, retention challenges. It's no wonder that local public opinion polls consistently rank education as a top priority, as does most every politician. Time to turn over public financial records."

Making sure we live in a safe environment
Lorraine and many others in Hawaii have health concerns of the radiation waves coming off of communications towers on the Big Island. Hawaii's needs may differ from technology on the mainland, and our government needs to be sensitive to Hawaii's needs. She has contacted the Hawaii Planning Dept, the Hawaii Heath Dept, and the FCC on her concerns. She is also in communication with other concern citizens to keep Hawaii's people safe. She believes the owners of such towers need to regulate the radiation waves at a safe level for our communities.
Help for the homeless
Lorraine was the president of the East Hawaii Coalition for the Homeless for six years. We gave them food, a both, clothing, and housing. We took care of both men and families and worked hard to find solutions.
