RISE WITH US
Brenton Awa gives this community an opportunity to be represented by a leader committed to putting the needs of local people over politics, and service to them over himself.
Born in Ka'a'awa, raised in Kahalu'u, and a graduate of Kahuku High School in 2004, Brenton represents the values embraced in the country.
"We never had much money growing up, but we excelled because of the constant wealth of support from our community, the teachers, the coaches, the volunteers, all the uncles and aunties, friends, family, and their life lessons for us, raising us with integrity. We've always been able to rise above any challenge because of how they shaped our lives, and our unmatched effort to never let them down," says Brenton.
Some of today's most pressing challenges include keeping local families from being pushed out of their communities, and finding ways to help those who've left, return.
"We've been working tirelessly since October to give locals a chance to elect one of their own to represent all of us in the State Capitol with the same values we learned, and high standards we were held to growing up. We are ready to be a vessel for our community to use to attack issues that matter to them, that make their lives better. We will stop at nothing to prevent non-residents from buying homes, to grow food to feed our people, to better educate our keiki, to establish term limits for lawmakers, to make sure local jobs go to local people, to push greed out of Hawaii and bring back a "Malama Mentality." There is no political party, politician, nor amount of money or individual benefit that will ever deter us from this purpose," says Brenton.
Let's do what we can to build a government that is for the locals.
