‘The government in Hawaii destroyed Hawaii’: Why Martina Light left Hawaii

We lived on Maui for over 10 years. I used to manage vacation rentals and my husband worked for Maui Electric. He was a lineman.

We moved to Florida because of all the ridiculousness — Covid-19 restrictions, taxes, government.

Moving to Florida was one of the best decisions we have ever made. We are happy to be free again and not have ridiculous restrictions. We are happy not to support Hawaii by paying its insanely high taxes.

Nothing would get us to move back. The government in Hawaii destroyed Hawaii.
