from www.GOPHawaii.com

As you may already know, July is "iMUST Month" for Hawaii Republicans.  Now is the time to make that conscience commitment to help the Party with community events, volunteer your time to campaigns and candidates that drive you and to encourage your friends and family to do the same.   We can take back our state and give our children a prosperous and vibrant future.  We can bring balance to Hawaii politics and fight against greed and corruption of our State Legislature.
