Golf Tournament/Fundraiser - Thank You

Golf Tournament/Fundraiser


I want to thank everyone that helped, sponsored, or participated in our Golf Tournament/Fundraiser this past Saturday.  I had a great time watching everyone try to avoid the water on hole 6.  There were some amazing shots and then there were some not so hot ones.  Some of the bad shots did avoid the water, but unfortunately they also only traveled a few inches from the tee box.

I still believe the saying holds true "a bad day of golf is better than a good day at work" especially when there is pigs feet/ox tail soup at the end of the day.  Hope you all enjoyed the day, food, prizes, and fellowship.

I want to say a special congratulations to Tom Shigemoto for his first ever HOLE-IN-ONE on the 16th hole par 3!

Upcoming Events
Stay tuned, we will be holding a sign waving event in the near future, but the date is not yet set.  This will be an ideal time to get your Arryl Kaneshiro shirts, signs, and banners.

Sincerely,

Arryl Kaneshiro

Press Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
Kaneshiro Files for Re-election
LIHUʻE, Hawaiʻi, May 31, 2018 – Alongside his family and friends, Councilmember Arryl Kaneshiro filed to enter the Kauaʻi County Council race today.

“I want to thank the residents of Kauaʻi and Niʻihau for allowing me to serve you on the County Council. I am humbled by the privilege to serve all of you for these past 4 years,” said Kaneshiro.  “I strive to bring homegrown values to the County Council decision making process.”

Kaneshiro was first elected to serve as a councilmember in 2014. During his tenure, Kaneshiro’s fellow Councilmembers have entrusted him as Chair of the Council’s all-important Budget and Finance Committee, reflecting his strong background in fiscal operations and management. Every year as Chairman of the Finance Committee, his Committee has continuously passed a balanced County budget, funded a healthy fiscal reserve, and maintained a strong bond rating saving County taxpayers on municipal debt costs.

Under Kaneshiro’s leadership, the policy of keeping a healthy financial reserve was done specifically to provide fiscal resilience and flexibility during times of emergency or disaster. Fortunately, this reserve was available for the County to fund disaster responses to our recent historic flooding catastrophe.

Furthermore, Kaneshiro has worked toward developing better long-term financial planning goals through policy adoption and transparent benchmarks. “This island has taught me that respecting those around you, caring about others before one’s self, and putting in the necessary work, truly is a marker for success,” he added.

If re-elected, Kaneshiro will continue prioritizing a balanced solutions-based approach toward governance and focus on creating more housing, protecting and promoting agriculture, increasing job opportunities, and maintaining a healthy and balanced budget.

“People ask why I think I’m a worthy Council candidate. I maintain that it’s not for any special reason. I represent the regular, everyday Kauaʻi residents who works hard to make the best life for their family because I am a regular, everyday Kauaʻi resident,” Kaneshiro said.

Kaneshiro is a 4th-generation Kauaian who enjoys spending his time working with his dad on their family’s sheep ranch in Omaʻo. He is a graduate of Kauaʻi High School and Pacific University and is a certified public accountant. He currently works at Grove Farm Company as a project manager. Prior to joining Grove Farm he worked in Portland, Oregon as a senior accountant in the private sector. 

“I am eternally grateful to my wife, my family, and my friends who make daily sacrifices and continue to support my desire for public service,” said Kaneshiro. “I would be honored to serve another term and hope my fellow residents believe that my record warrants it.“
