KAHULUI, HI — Maui Mayoral Candidate Kelly Takaya King today released the initial fundraising numbers for her campaign and bid for Maui Mayor. In the first 13 days after her filing to seek the office of Maui Mayor, Councilwoman King’s campaign has received $44,260 through June 19, 2022.
Candidate King shared, “While I am grateful for the support and the strong vote of confidence, this campaign is about “we” not “me”! Through my decades of community involvement, business management and Council work, I have a deep understanding of and experience with Maui County government, and look forward to transitioning from policy-making to running an administration for the people—transparent, accountable and collaborative.”
Councilwoman King was urged to run for Maui Mayor in the final days before the filing deadline by local residents who were seeking a proactive, “visionary” leader with a record of accomplishments. After considering the potential for bringing change to Maui County, being the first ʻāina-focused administrator in recent history and utilizing her proven collaboration skills to transform county government, Councilwoman King accepted the challenge.
Councilwoman King and her Council office team have proven that professionalism can get things done, compassion will bring folks together to solve problems and transparency breeds trust. While administering with a firm vision of strategic goal-setting, “Mayor King” will bring a kinder, gentler, nurturing and customer focused leadership to the 9th floor.
