The issues facing Kaua’i today are complex, and the solutions are sometimes counterintuitive. Finding good solutions requires a spirit of inquiry and a deep respect for diversity of thought and perspective.

I hope these papers show at the very least the rigor of my thinking, transparency of my approach, and the sincerity of my search for real solutions.
