Adele N. Koyama

Unit 3 Director

Why are you running for office?

I care about preserving the rights and benefits that we currently enjoy. Having served as a Unit 03 State Board Director for four previous terms, I have the experience to deal with various issues that challenge our members and I am prepared to deal with future ones.

What are your goals?

My three goals are to: 1) represent members and speak on their behalf, 2) educate members of the various issues that we currently face, and 3) continue improving communication to all members resulting in a stronger and more viable HGEA ohana.
