Lahaina News

LAHAINA - Propelled to action by the challenges COVID-19 has brought to West Maui, Sne Patel is running for the Maui County Council's West Side seat.

"We are at a pivotal moment in Maui Nui's future. COVID-19 has shown us some of our greatest vulnerabilities, especially in West Maui, which is now home to the nation's highest unemployment rate. But it has also revealed our strengths as a community who can come together to help one another and work together to create a better way forward. I hope to play a part in transforming our challenges into opportunities that will build a more resilient Maui County," he said.

To create greater resiliency, Patel believes a range of priorities must be addressed, including economic recovery and diversification, a new vision for our visitor industry, affordable housing/homelessness, education and food and clean energy security.
