All 13 Charter Amendments passed in the 2022 Elections
Learn how this rewiring of county governance will affect community
As the only organization promoting all 13 charter amendments, the Maui Pono Network’s core team and volunteers are joyous for our community because we understand the uplifting changes they bring.
The 13 amendments rewire our county governance system to be more effective, efficient, transparent and accountable; and will also increase civic engagement and professionalism. We will have the structure to truly provide affordable housing purchase and rental. They will steer the abundance of the one of the richest counties in the United States to resolve long standing issues and needs and put an end to the main avenues of nepotism and cronyism. Our county residents will have control of our water system instead of a Canadian Pension Fund known for its pillage. Mahalo to the many organizations and individuals who contributed to the community’s awareness on this water legislation.
Be informed on why these amendments are important and the change they bring to our governance.

The New Mayor's Effectiveness is an Unknown
Many are hopeful that our new mayor will do an effective job in administering this one-billion-dollar county corporation. Will the new mayor bring Maui County closer to having “pono governance”? The Maui Pono Network will monitor decisions as we are starting with a clean slate.
The County Council Election Results
The Maui Pono Network supported 9 county council seats and won 5. However, the 5th candidate did not have a progressive voting record and yet was considered better than her opponent. Two of our progressive council leaders will be leaving their office after an unsuccessful bid for mayor. Their replacements were heavily funded by the Carpenter’s Union and big money interests.
