“District 40 (Ewa Beach-Iroquois Point): Republican Bob McDermott deserves to remain the incumbent here over Democratic opponent Rose Martinez, a part-time teacher and small business owner. We often disagree with McDermott’s social conservativism, but his ability to articulate on behalf of various issues adds needed diversity to the House. He gets credit for his advocacy for a new high school in this fast-growing district, which has seen serious overcrowding at its two existing high schools. McDermott, a Realtor, expresses the usual GOP points about streamlining the permitting process and cutting taxes and regulations, but also supports completing the rail system, which likely will require extending the general excise tax surcharge.”

McDermott is asking specifically to expand the inadequate cafeteria facilities, air condition classrooms and start building a new high school in Kapolei to receive overcrowding.
