Welcome to MCCFDIA
Maui County Citizens for Democracy in Action (MCCFDIA) is committed to providing positive changes for the people of Maui County through the use of voter registration efforts and the Maui County Initiative Process. We hope that every citizen takes part in the democratic process.
We believe that a true a representation of Maui citizens' voices and views can only be achieved through passing ordinances by initiative. The initiative process is free speech, our innate right and a way to control and not fear the government. It is the means to make our government work for the people and not for their corporate sponsors or special interest groups.
MCCFDIA is committed to changing Maui County from a dangerous import-dependent economy to a safe, self-sustainable island community through the diversification of Maui's agricultural industry, biodiversity, and ecotourism.
MCCFDIA supports a common sense alternative to the current conflicts in Hawaii’s medical marijuana laws. In partnership with Maui's community of healers, doctors, and caregivers, we envision a system in Maui County, the State of Hawai'i, and the United States of America, where medical marijuana use becomes a heath issue, not a criminal issue.
MCCFDIA seeks to help create needed jobs, increase Maui County revenues, while protecting Maui’s environment. We support the promotion of sustainable family farms, thru an allotment system based on the USA's tobacco allotment rules, as we propose in The Hawaii Sustainable Family Farm Act.
Innovative reforms in Maui’s laws can focus on a wide range of issues, including crime prevention, education, alternatives to imports, bringing clarity in the judicial systems and law enforcement departments, and any other issues that are important to you.
You have the Power! You can protect Maui's air, land and water, and end sugar cane smoke and GMO contamination of Maui County's delicate ecosystems. You can ensure equal access to justice, and ensure our right of jury nullification by utilizing the Initiative Power.
A strong community effort will be required to register voters and gather signatures for a successful Initiative petition. Visit our YouTube video library to view our Initiative Process Tutorials.
The County of Maui is absolutely committed to the protection of civil rights and civil liberties for all of its residents and affirms its commitment to embody democracy; to embrace, defend, and uphold the inalienable rights and fundamental liberties granted by the United State's Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Hawai'i State Constitution, and the Maui County Charter.
