» Libertarian Allen "Al" Frenzel, candidate for State House District 44, was inadvertently omitted from Sunday's Primary Election Guide. His responses are below.
Allen "Al" Frenzel
Job: Business owner
Background: Retired Army colonel; owner of Makaha Art Gallery and Trunk-It (Student Storage Solutions)
What makes you qualified to be a state representative?
I serve no masters and owe favors to no one. My special interests are the needs of the community and its people. I don't seek this office to pay bills or feed my ego. If elected, I will donate my annual salary to nonprofit organizations serving Leeward communities.
Should there be additional restrictions on development in Kakaako? Why?
No further restrictions are needed BUT current requirements must be enforced. HCDA (Hawaii Community and Development Authority) should not be allowed to change building rules without legislative authorization. Shortsighted approvals are being made without adequate infrastructure or the assurance that infrastructure will be improved commensurate with the approved and proposed developments in the Kakaako area.
