January 20, 2015
My family and I want to start by wishing you a Happy New Year. We remain committed to building a real two-party democracy in Hawaii. Our state is dominated by big unions, big businesses and big media, for a big government that services themselves to the detriment of the community. While we are disappointed in the election results of 2014, that doesn't mean we should just give up and give in to the one-party political machine in our state.
Instead, I encourage you to continue to fight on and be part of the resistance against the local machine that cares for nothing beyond the self-preservation of power for itself and its friends. Please consider joining us at the upcoming Republican Party district caucuses taking place across the state over the next several weeks.
Below is more information from the Hawaii GOP about the time and location of the upcoming caucuses. Best wishes.
