Hawaii Government Employees Association endorses Colleen Hanabusa for Governor.
From HGEA Facebook Page, June 12, 2018
“Colleen is a strong leader who understands the struggles of Hawaii’s working families. She will take action on critical issues including affordable housing, wage inequality and infrastructure,” said Randy Perreira, HGEA Executive Director. “She believes that our public workforce is one of our State’s greatest resources and is committed to working together with us.”
“On behalf of our campaign and supporters, I extend my heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the more than 42,000 members of HGEA, which is placing its trust in me and our campaign to build a better future for Hawaii’s families,” said Colleen Hanabusa. “The Hawaii we know and love was built by labor. The professional opportunities and protections guaranteed by our unions have helped our families grow and thrive in one of the most expensive places to live in the world. Equality and fairness in the workplace is vital to ensuring the same values are championed in every facet of our communities. Together, we will ensure that Hawaii’s future includes all of us, not just a privileged few.”
Really Obvious Question: Why should any politician help HGEA get a fatter contract? Ige gave HGEA the Sun, Moon, and Stars and look how they repay him.
