Talk Story With Governor Ige.

Pacific Air Forces


This morning Governor David Ige joins us live in our Kaheka street studios to talk about his priorities for Hawaii during this last term in office.

On the list state-funded preschools, and affordable condominiums on state land.

His administration is also asking for more money to fix our highways and bridges by raising the gas tax, vehicle weight tax, and car registration fees. Competing needs in our state include a new jailhouse and a new stadium. And what to do about OVERTOURISM and the runaway vacation rentals in our neighborhoods. How do we strike a balance? Are we doing enough to tackle our homeless problem and the threat of rising sea levels due to climate change? What’s our blueprint for the future. We invited you to talk story with the Governor. island. call  808-941-3689 on O’ahu or 1-877-941-3689 on Neighbor Islands
