Yamashita important to quality of life Upcountry

I want to let you know how important Rep. Kyle Yamashita has been to the quality of life here in Upcountry. As chair of the state’s Capital Improvement Program, Rep. Yamashita has brought in a total of $59 million for this and the next fiscal years for critical Upcountry projects! In addition, he is responsible for obtaining the $35 million for the magnificent King Kekaulike High School Performing Arts Center.

His efforts have and will continue to improve our schools, our roads, the safety of our keiki, preserve forest land for reforestation and public recreation and generally make Upcountry an even a better place to live.

He is also responsible for obtaining $215 million for other Maui projects, such as airport and harbor improvements, library renovations and the all too needed Paia and Lahaina bypasses to name a few.

We cannot afford to lose this important voice for us in the Legislature. If he is defeated, it is highly unlikely Maui will have this position again.

Please support Rep. Kyle Yamashita in the primary on Aug. 11. Support Upcountry and the improvement of Maui. Vote for Rep. Kyle Yamashita.
