Ed Case: Our Challenges, My Beliefs, Your Support
By Ed Case @ 3:00 PM :: 3251 Views :: Energy, Environment, National News, Ethics

Ours is the greatest country. Not just our founding principles, but our history and our continued promise. Our freedoms, balance of majority rule and minority rights, inclusion of new peoples. It’s not always easy being an American. We make mistakes, get out of balance, rarely take a straight path to a better future. But our foundations are sound, we self-correct, and we have bettered our world at great sacrifice. By staying true to our principles and heritage in a changing world, we will prevail.

Ed Case: “Prevedouros and Carlisle are the change candidates against status quo Caldwell”
By Ed Case @ 2:14 PM :: 3384 Views :: Maui County, Education K-12, Energy, Environment

I like Panos Prevedouros: his energy and enthusiasm; outside-politics base and perspective; and fresh thinking and independence. We need him and many others like him to seek and serve in elective office. In this election, though, he and Carlisle are the change candidates against a status quo Caldwell; I don't want that vote to be split at the risk of Caldwell prevailing. As well, as a cautious mass transit supporter, I don't believe rail should be effectively scuttled on this vote. So for me Prevedouros is a yes, but not this one.

By Ed Case @ 10:15 PM :: 4134 Views :: Energy, Environment

...I've known and worked with Hannemann for the same period, and once saw him as a leader for Hawai‘i today and tomorrow. But, as I've watched him in public office, I've come to view him as the most dangerous politician in a generation, because his talents mask an agenda which, if successful, will set Hawai‘i back a generation. He is the product and clear choice of a political machine that must end....

Ed Case -- "Election '10: Beyond The Machine"
By Ed Case @ 11:57 PM :: 3198 Views :: Energy, Environment

Editor’s Note: In other words, if Mufi Hannemann is the Democrats’ nominee for Governor, he will become the next Dan Inouye and  Hawaii will be under his thumb for the next 20-30 years.  Without a Hannemann victory, there is no Democrat ready to become the next Inouye and Hawaii will become a two-party democracy.

Ed Case seeks return to Congress -- CD1
By Ed Case @ 11:19 AM :: 6570 Views :: Education K-12, Environment, Ethics

I'm truly excited at the opportunity to represent Hawai’i's great First Congressional District … from Makapu’u to Mililani, Waikele and Ewa Beach. I've lived and worked in the First half of my life. I represented Mānoa and Makiki for eight years in our state legislature, have crisscrossed the First in two statewide campaigns, and have addressed its needs in Congress. I know the First, and I know I can represent its 600,000 citizens well in Congress.

To my friends in Hawai’i's equally great Second Congressional, where I was born and raised and have spent the other half of my life, and whom I was fiercely proud to represent in Congress for over four years, I look forward to continuing to represent you in D.C. as well. I ask for your continued support.
