The county council, mayor, various departments and agencies all need
to work well together to serve the people, and it takes understanding and communication for it to happen. 
I make that my full time job.

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE INTERVIEW 2018
2018 REFLECTION

Aloha Kaua`i Ohana,

 

We are in a critical period of time when many competing and challenging issues face our island community. My experiences over the past 35 years working with the government in a range of roles from an engineer, to a small business owner, educator, community advocate, non-profit board member and media programmer have given me a broad foundation to understand policy as it affects our people and environment.  Ten years as a public affairs/talk show programmer on KKCR has had me fielding community concerns, coupled with my direct participation in the public process to assist in creating solutions. This role has taught me that we need to work to solve problems

without having to make anybody wrong. We each win when we all win. 

 

Hawaii has long been in the slow crisis of the global economy pressuring our people out of their homes and off of the islands. We need to out-create this problem. Helping with the 2018 storm recovery in Wainiha and Haʻena underscored how competent our citizenry is and where our public policy has weak points; particularly when it intersects with nature. This was my compelling motivation to run a second time for the council. With no competing job interest and with my sons have now grown into independent young men, I have the capacity for the full-time commitment the county council deserves to ensure the well-being and health of the peoples and the islands of Kauaʻi and Niʻihau. Thank you for your support with one of your seven votes for the Kaua'i County Council. 

Mahalo,

Felicia Cowden

I would love to hear from you!
