Hanabusa Can't Stand Up To Local Bankers—How Will She Tackle Wall Street

News Release from www.Djou.com

Honolulu - Charles K. Djou, Republican candidate for Hawaii’s 1st Congressional District, questioned Senate President Colleen Hanabusa on Earth Day on her claims that she will hold Wall Street accountable given the Legislature’s failure to pass a proposal to use state bonds to finance loans for homeowners to install rooftop solar panels, solar hot water heaters and energy-efficient appliances.  The measure passed both chambers and had community support, but last-minute opposition from the Mortgage Bankers Association of Hawaii contributed to the failure of the measure.

“This is good legislation that will benefit our community by providing families with the opportunity to reduce the amount they pay for electricity while helping the environment.  As Senate President, if Colleen Hanabusa can’t stand up to the Mortgage Bankers Association, how is she going to stand up to Wall Street,” stated Djou.  “We need a representative who can get things done.  We need someone who will fight for the people of Hawaii, not someone who will side with special interests.”

In contrast to Hanabusa, Charles Djou is a proven leader in the area of renewable energy, who has worked with his Democrat colleagues on the City Council, to pass the following measures.

Djou is the only major candidate for Hawaii’s 1st Congressional District who actually lives in the district.  He is a law professor and Army Reserve officer.  He currently serves on the Honolulu City Council and previously served as the Minority Floor Leader in the State House.
