Herkes spoke on vog, disaster preparedness, agriculture, and other topics important to his district, during an hour long filming at the Na Leo television studio. Herkes was pleased to announce that a mobile medical van would be providing health services to residents in his district in the coming months.
Herkes also spoke about his plans to make an emergency shelter in Pahala a reality.
With his district struggling with drought and infrastructure issues, Herkes also had harsh words on the topic of county water.
