Last night, May 30, 2014, I attended the Nijikai at Pagoda Restaurant that was put together by the Honolulu Japanese Junior Chamber of Commerce. I was with my friends, Ryan Sanada, Dan Chen, Nina Furukawa, and Erika Kimura. I saw my sister Lara who is on the board of directors. It was a really good event.

This week Tuesday, May 27 and Thursday, May 29, 2014 in the morning and afternoon, I’ve been handling the criminal misdemeanor cases in Honolulu District Court 7D and 7A. Today, May 29, 2014, I won my fourth Assault in the Third degree trial where a young man punched and pushed an older man several times in Waikiki. I feel fortunate to be undefeated in assault trials.
In the afternoon, I sign-waved for Shan Tsutsui for Lt. Governor of Hawaii in front of the Hawaii State Capitol. After that, I attended the Retail Merchants of Hawaii mixer at the IBM Building’s courtyard with my friend Allen Yadao.
On Saturday, May 24 and Sunday, May 25, 2014, I attended the Hawaii State Democratic Convention held at the Sheraton Waikiki hotel with my friend Brandon Mitsuda. It was so nice to see so many old friends and I made some new ones as well. I have a number of friends running for different offices, so this year will be exciting!
