Tom Yamachika is the President of the Tax Foundation of Hawaii, a private, nonprofit educational organization dedicated to informing the taxpaying public about the finances of our state and local governments in Hawaii. This means the Foundation looks at how government raises the money it spends, be it taxes, user fees, or borrowing money through the use of debt. While most of the Foundation’s attention is focused on state government, it also keeps a watchful eye on county governments as they annually set real property tax rates in order to fund their respective budgets. Tom received his Juris Doctor degree from the University of California at Berkeley, where he was a Note and Comment Editor of the California Law Review. He received his bachelor’s degree in Engineering and Applied Science from Yale College, where he was elected to Tau Beta Pi and Phi Beta Kappa, and graduated magna cum laude.
Hosted @ Big City Diner- located at the Winward Mall.
Lunch will be Served by Big City Diner Featuring:
Pan Seared Salmon w/Miso-Ginger sauce, BBQ Chicken in Homemade Guava BBQ Sauce, Mamasan's Vegetable Stir Fry, Hapa Rice, Mama's Bread Pudding
