Who is Ben?

Ben Shafer is a fourth generation Hawaiian from Kahana Valley. A long-time community advocate, he was one of the leaders in the fight against Turtle Bay Resort expansion. Ben works for the International Alliance Theatrical and Stage Employees and Film I.A.T.S.E. Local 665, and he serves on the Oʻahu Island Burial Council.


Why is he running?

Ben believes integrity matters and that collaboration is the path to success. Ben’s compassion and respect for others help guide his work. Our large and diverse district needs an active leader who can effectively represent all our communities. Ben will serve as the pono Senator our district needs and deserves.


What does he care about?

The high cost of living makes it increasingly difficult to get by. Government needs more accountability and less waste. We must protect our quality of life, avoid over-development, protect our agricultural lands, increase local food production, maintain our roads, and give our schools and keiki the resources they need for success.
