Mike Victorino was elected to represent the Wailuku, Waihee and Waikapu areas of Maui on the Maui County Council in 2006.
In a Honolulu Advertiser article entitled, and dated August 7, 2006, Christie Wilson reported:
- Candidate Mike Victorino, 52, of Wailuku Heights, is chairman of the county Board of Water Supply, a former Board of Education member, and perhaps best known as director of the Maui County Fair Association and for his involvement in youth soccer and baseball.
- Victorino, an insurance and financial adviser and resort security officer, sees an urgent need for housing in the $200,000 to $275,000 price range. This can be accomplished by bringing government, private and nonprofit interests together, he said. "We have to focus on working people and making sure they're taken care of, and all of the rest of it will come," he said. "The million-dollar homes will come no matter what, but if we focus on the working people and housing for rent and purchase, then we will continue to have Maui be the Maui that we love and care about."
- As an immediate solution to traffic on Honoapi'ilani Highway, Victorino said the county and state should acquire an old cane-haul road for an alternate route to Lahaina and consider implementing contraflow lanes. "We should use it for car pooling, buses and trucks to get them off the main road and reduce that traffic," he said. 
The following is from the voter information guide on the Hawaii State Office of Elections website:
- Being elected to the County Council is another means for me to serve the people of Maui County.
- Build homes and apartments for the working people which is affordable to purchase for $250,000 to $275,000 and rental for $550 to $850 a month. This will ensure that working people in the retail, service, skilled profession and public sector can remain in Maui and can raise their families.
- I believe in Smart Growth for improvement to our infrastructure (roads, public transportation, airport security and safety, emergency and medical services) water, parks, and schools all being part of the Master Plan.
- I would focus on the need to not only catch up, but get ahead in these areas.
- I would work on the development of new water sources and formulate a conservation plan.
- I would work hard to improve our educational system. Our children's future depends on this.
- I would work with Maui's Finest, Maui Police Department to reduce crime in our community.
- I would work to make Maui the leader in Ethanol fuel, renewable energy, solar and wind energy sources.
- I would work hard to sustain our agriculture industry by having food grown here in Maui County to help our farmers remain viable.
