Tae W. Kim
For Honolulu City Prosecutor
"Responsibility and Accountability"
We must change the culture of complacency and closed-door meetings.
Elected officials must serve in the best interest of all people.
WE MUST CHANGE THE CULTURE OF:
“It’s who you know NOT what you know” and “loyalty is above everything”
THERE MUST BE TERM LIMITS FOR HONOLULU PROSECUTING ATTORNEY
My name is Tae Kim. I grew up in Kaneohe, Hawaii. I graduated from James B. Castle high school and earned my Bachelor's degree from U.H. Manoa. I went on to receive my Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Oklahoma.
I have been licensed and actively practicing criminal law in Honolulu since 1992. Throughout my 27 years of legal experience, I have worked with many prosecutors and defense attorneys in all areas of the criminal justice system.
I have aloha for our community and want to bring effective agendas to the Honolulu Prosecutors Office.
I believe criminal prosecution is all about accountability. I demand responsible behavior and will see that this is enforced through the three agendas below.
Community concerns matter
Neighborhood Board Meetings
HPD & Sheriffs
with other Law Enforcement Agencies
Hawaii Revised Statutes
Revised Ordinances of Honolulu
Hawaii Rules of Penal Procedures
with Defense Attorneys
Other Issues I Wish to Address
I wish to address issues surrounding homelessness and operation of motor vehicles.
There must be effective ways to address these GROWING issues within our communities:
Homelessness is Not a crime but any homeless must also behave responsibly and needs to be held accountable for their actions. We need to expand the laws concerning "disorderly conducts and trespasses".
Ownership of motor vehicles is a right but the operation of the vehicles in our streets and highways is a privilege and the drivers are expected to behave responsibly and held accountable when they don’t. Again, there must be immediate and real-time consequences and accountability.
Law must be revisited to address these issues. It’s simply not acceptable to say there are currently no rules to enforce them or enforce effectively.
Now, LET’S MAKE A DIFFERENCE...
