Introduction and Resume

My name is MARK NAKASHIMA and I would like to serve as your voice in the State House of Representatives. As a lifelong resident of Hawaii, I am fortunate to have been nurtured by such a warm and generous community. I love these islands and I am proud to call this special place home.

I believe that an important part of being a legislator is ensuring that the laws and policies that are enacted not only create opportunities for the people of Hawaii but also preserve the lifestyle and aina that we have all come to love and cherish.

I would like to work with you to ensure a brighter future. Together, with the residents of the various communities throughout the first district, I will endeavor to work toward the fulfillment of community projects and goals.

With my future colleagues in the legislature I will work to enact policies that increase our quality of life and leave this place better than I found it.

Having been born and raised on the Big Island, I have developed a long perspective what makes the Big Island -- the Big Island. As a life-long resident, I am committed to the preservation of our rural lifestyle and country values. As your representative, my first priority is to be accessible to you. Please call me at 775-9170 or email me at

With these thoughts in mind, I humbly ask for your precious vote in the upcoming election.
