"I’ve known Lisa for years. She’s worked hard to keep residential land to house local families, and to keep agricultural lands available for local farmers. She’s smart. She’s reliable. She’s experienced. She’s who we need at the Capitol, to make sure we reach a brighter future as we recover from these trying times."
Laura Thielen, State Senator
"Lisa has spent years listening to our neighbors, organizing our community, and getting people involved to help us change policy at the Capitol. She cares about our issues and I’m excited to work with her because she knows how to get things done."
Chris Lee, State Representative
"Our bikeway/walkway had turned into a parking lot for visitors who were undeterred by a $35 fine, until Lisa took the initiative to get the fine raised to $200.
Now moms with strollers and kids on bikes are no longer forced into the street by tourists looking for beach parking. Mahalo Lisa. She is a community problem solver."
Molly Foti, Lanikai resident
"Lisa Marten fought with me for a ban in 2012 on commercial activities that were taking over our beach parks and intruding into our neighborhoods. She is willing to put in the work and the time to fight to preserve this place for our keiki."
Lisa Cates, Enchanted Lakes Resident
"Lisa’s science curriculum and the field trips she hosts really engage our students because they are about real world problems and include the students as part of the solution."
Aikahi Elementary STEM Teacher
"Lisa helped us create meaningful and engaging science experiences for our students by providing supplies to grow seedlings in class, and by hosting a hands-on learning experience helping to restore a critical habitat."
Kristen Gagesh, Kailua Intermediate Science Teacher
"Lisa has shown that she shares our vision and is excited to help with local solutions for our homeless. We need that kind of collaboration in government."
Waimānalo resident working with the homeless
"Lisa’s persistence and commitment has resulted in an innovative community forestry collaboration which is producing positive environmental benefits for the community."
