Thank you for your support in the Primary Election on September 20, 2008. I will continue to do my best for our community and state.
On a negative note, I was attacked by negative mailers that were illegal since there was no legitimate organization or address printed. I will continue to be positive and focus on my platform for my community and Hawaii. Thank you to all of you who volunteered and donated funds! I sincerely appreciate your support.
On Friday, September 12, 2008, I attended the dinner portion of the Ironworkers’ golf tournament at Waikele Golf Course. After, I attended the Subcontractors Association of Hawaii Annual Conference reception at Ihilani Resort. I talked to a couple of friends and two residents of Waikele I visited going door-to-door. I can’t believe I walked most of my district 9 times since 2002. I loss about 7 pounds and am past the 50,000 household mark.
August 29, 2008: Presented a House certificate to Waipahu High School teacher Kristi Hammond for winning the Outstanding Educator 2007 from Oceanic Time Warner and Pizza Hut. My office manager Wayne Yagi and I surprised her at the school. Also, we attended Waipahu Intermediate School’s celebration event for Tanner Tokunaga of the Waipio Little League World Series championship team. Tanner was taken around the campus in a golf cart followed by another as the students went crazy. The State House and State Senate presented him certificates as well as some of the Waipahu community organizations.
