Charles Djou on Environment

 

 


Advocated for recycling and trash services on City Council

Urban and dense Honolulu forces its children to walk home from school on broken sidewalks. It was refreshing a few weekends ago spending the day with the Hawaii Bicycling League discussing government reform and safe streets at TEDx Honolulu. It's so nice to know others feel as strongly as you. If only our government leaders addressed structural problems the way they funneled pork projects like building a massive and widely unpopular rail system. I saw the frustration of my friend Charles Djou when he served on the city council as he advocated for and worked for better recycling and trash services. Fixing problems was real to him and his attempts in public service were often stifled by good intentioned politicians that promoted clumsy poor policy.
