My name is Wayne Hikida and I have been fortunate to have been born and raised here in Hawaii. I have a deep love and respect for our Island Home. Many of the values that I hold dear are rooted in our unique local culture. I guess you could say that I am local to the core.
My sweetheart Kathy and I have lived in Kailua for 37 years and have raised our 5 children here. Like many of you I have been busy making a life for my family and seeking opportunities to serve others. I’ve served as a missionary in Brazil, a Bishop for the Mormon Church in Waimanalo and Kailua. I’ve served in a number of professional and voluntary organizations throughout my life. I enjoy what I do at work because it allows me to serve others.
Our State faces many challenges, and we look to our leaders for answers. Regretfully, for some time now I have felt that our local officials have underserved the people of Hawaii. I think we deserve better! So rather than continue to grumble about what is not being done, I’ve decided to become part of the solution. So I am asking you to allow me to serve you by electing me as the representative to the 51st district.
