My father, Kiyoshi Hiraike, served honorably in the United States Air Force.
Like many others, my father was not interred in a veterans cemetery.
The 68th District, specifically Irvine, has the space and opportunity to build a cemetery that would be the well-deserved final resting place for Orange County's veteran community.
The construction of the proposed veterans cemetery has been delayed due to developer influence on public policy and a lack of leadership at the state level by our current Assembly member.
As the son and grandson of veterans, I am appalled that honoring our veterans is not a top priority of my opponent.
As a grassroots candidate, I pledge not to be influenced by the money of developers. If elected, ensuring the construction of the veterans cemetery- in the location the voters want - will be a top priority.
