District One Budget Highlights – Fiscal Year 2014 (July)

Aloha,

This year, the Honolulu City Council offers you a balanced budget that will increase services to the public and restore our most treasured public facilities in our communities, all without raising your taxes.

I would like to give you a glimpse of the projects and programs that I have secured for the residents of our District. Each of these projects and programs will positively affect the quality of life for residents of our District.

With your help, we will make sure that the Leeward Coast and Ewa Region will continue to shine as a vibrant and growing community!

Mahalo,

Kymberly Marcos Pine
