Rep. Tulsi Gabbard on Facebook: Closing Puʻuhonua o Waiʻanae without transition plan is a bad idea

March 12, 2018
Press Release

"The proposal to close Puʻuhonua o Waiʻanae without working with the more than 200 individuals currently living there to create a transition plan on where they will go is a bad idea that is causing uncertainty, stress, hardship, and pain for these residents. The reality is that Hawaiʻi faces a severe affordable housing crisis, and these families and individuals have been doing what they can to make do, taking care of each other, ensuring their keiki get to school, working together to prevent crime, and more. The state should halt their plans for relocation until they work with this community on a responsible transition plan that will actually take care of our brothers and sisters that call Puʻuhonua o Waiʻanae home." -TG
