A Native Hawaiian with English, Spanish and Okinawan ancestry, Elle Cochran can easily relate to the state’s melting pot of diverse cultural practices, colorful histories and ancient languages that she believes enrich us and that must be recognized and perpetuated. Elle has been a lifelong resident of Lahaina.
As the founder of the successful Save Honolua Coalition, a proud founding member of Faith Action for Community Equity Maui (FACE) and the hard working President of Maui Unite! Cochran understands the importance of educating, mobilizing and listening to the community in order to create the most favorable outcome for the people, you the voter.
Along with her community responsibilities, Elle makes time for her love of ocean sports. She organizes and/or participates in sports events that raise money for charitable causes. See her raising money for Youth in Action to benefit Moloka‘i youth.
