Aloha and welcome to My name is Don S. Guzman and I am running for the Maui County Council- Kahului District. With your help and support, our campaign is now in full swing.

I humbly and respectfully request your support in this race.  For this election, I come to you as the incumbent.  My first year in office has been a marathon race, with such responsibilities as Chairing the Council’s Economic Development, Energy, Agriculture, and Recreation Committee, Actively Vice-Chairing the Land Use Committee and as a voting member of the Council’s six other Committees – Planning; Land Use; Budget & Finance; Housing & Transportation; Policy & Intergovernmental Affairs; and Water Resources. My involvement with these committees has given me the privilege of influencing the outcome of some of the more difficult issues that came before last year’s Council.

Exposure to, and participation in, the vast range of topics in front of the Council has provided me with the opportunity to increase my knowledge of critical issues facing our community and County systems and processes. It has also given me the opportunity to foster collaboration between all levels of government, community sectors, and our general citizenry, and I have taken full advantage of these opportunities.

Year two of my first term is already in motion, and my team and I are working at full throttle to introduce fresh proposals and legislation. Some of these proposals address issues that have been lingering before the Council for decades, and with your support I will be able to see this work through to completion.

Please take a moment to click around our website to find out more information about me and what I believe is in the best interest of Maui County. I humbly ask for your vote and continued support.

Mahalo Nui Loa,
