I am a scientist. I am concerned about having Atrazine and other harmful chemicals in our environment on Maui.

Because of that I also support Terez Amato for Senate as Ed Felien mentioned in the abovecomment.

We are truly fortunate to have a thoughtful logical compassionate (locally raised) candidate like Terez Amato stepping up to serve as our citizen advocate in Hawaii Senate District 6 South and West Maui (Kihei through Lahaina+).

Terez Amato is honest, fair, and consistently demonstrates respectful progressive views on; Education, Labor, Health, Local Industry, as well as the Environment. I read her platform at ****TerezAmato****

Atrazine in the drinking water in Maui:

According to the Hawaii Department of Health, “On Maui, it’s been detected in Kihei, Puunene and Paia,” Honolulu Civil Beat, March 11, 2013.

Senator Roz Baker, representing Lahaina and Kihei, Chair of the Commerce and Consumer Affairs Committee, has been effective in blocking any efforts to force large chemical corporations to disclose what they’re doing to us. But as the Maui Weekly said in their December 19-25, 2013 issue: “State Sen. Roz Baker’s efforts to derail the GMO labeling bill will come back to haunt her.”

That haunting has now begun with the candidacy of Terez Amato for the State Senate seat in District 6. As a single mom, Amato is concerned about what GMO’s could do to her children, and she's also concerned about how her children's asthma is being affected by the burning of sugar cane.
