On Wednesday, October 19, 2005, I spent a day on Kauai with Kauai Representative Mina Morita. We met with the Kauai Economic Development Board, the Niihau Shell Makers and some public students in Project East. I was really touched to meet the Ni’ihau shell makers. They were grateful for a bill I introduced that became law, which authenticates Niihau shell products to prevent fraudulent sales. I was so honored to meet them. I really appreciated Rep. Morita for giving me the opportunity to meet with the community in Kauai.

I am so honored to be here to congratulate Hoku Scientific for all its hard work and achievements. I remember meeting with Dustin a year and a half ago and we came up with a bill for a $10 million special purpose revenue bond to help Hoku Scientific build the facility you see here. I want to thank my colleagues in the House of Representatives and State Senate and also the Governor for supporting the bill ($10 million special purpose revenue bond bill) I introduced this year.
I would like to mention that since I was young, I would dream of the endless possibilities for Hawaii. One of my biggest dreams is to see Hawaii become a global economic power. And I know this might seem far-fetched for some. But it is because of leaders like Dustin and companies like Hoku, my dream is still alive today. Thank you. Congratulations.
I would like to thank my colleagues in the House and Senate…if you guys could come up to the stage to help me present this certificate.
