Informing the Public and Supporting Local Issues and Governance

The Maui Pono Network

A Resounding Progressive Victory in Maui County’s 2020 Elections!

Our Maui community stopped an attempted coup of our local governance by big money, out of county, Corporate Super PACS who spent $430,000 in Maui County’s general election. They endorsed and promoted the exact opposite of the Maui Pono Network.

Voters selected 14 of the 16 candidates and charter amendments the Maui Pono Network supported. Our budget was $10,000 for the general election, 1/43rd the opposition. (MPN also spent $10,000 on the Primary race).

Mahalo to all the volunteers, donors, and voters – YOU made this victory happen!
