Representative Holt's Message                                          

Aloha mai kākou,

As we complete second decking of Senate Bills this evening and prepare for conference committees within the next few weeks, I continue to reach out to our community and neighborhoods, to listen to your concerns and work with you on those solutions.  I feel this is important, we must become more “Civically Engaged.”

Basically, civically engaged individuals are people who care about what is going on around them, and who take some action that indicates this. The specific five categories of civic participation are:
Remain “Civically Engaged.”
Honoring Hawaiian Cultural Practitioners for their perpetuation and practices of Hawaiian culture.
Honoring Kalani Pe'a, Hawaiian singer, songwriter, and producer, for his 2017 Grammy Award winning album "E Walea".  In addition to gaining worldwide recognition for his talents in mele, Kalani is also an educator and published children author/illustrator who continues to cultivate the beauty of Hawai'i, in, and through our keiki.

Honoring Hokulea Crewmember Sam K. Kapoi, as a Hawaiian Cultural Practitioner who strives to perpetuate and practice Hawaiian ideologies of the Land, Sea, and Institution.

April is National Distracted Driving Month

During April, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) National Distracted Driving Awareness Month, the Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT), along with the county police departments, and traffic safety partners, Toyota Hawaii and DTRIC Insurance, will be working together to educate Hawaii about the dangers of distracted driving.

Presentations will be held at Drive Aloha Fairs statewide to demonstrate the dangers of distracted driving with the use of a state-of-the-art digital driving simulator system that allows drivers of all ages to experience how dangerous it is to operate a vehicle while being distracted. The digital simulator system is the only one of its kind in Hawaii.  Drive Aloha Fairs are free and open to the public.  More Info..
