Duke and Lynn Launch "Power" Web Series Video


HONOLULU - Duke Aiona and Lynn Finnegan today launched the third in a series of videos they are sharing online to discuss real solutions for all of Hawai‘i. The third spot, "Power," focuses on reducing the financial burden on Hawai‘i's working families and small businesses.

The 30-second web video consists of time-lapse driving sequences, seeing the islands through Duke Aiona's perspective as we hear his thoughts.

The web video can be viewed online at or Duke and Lynn's YouTube channel at

The following is a transcript of Duke Aiona and Lynn Finnegan's second web video, "Power."

Duke Aiona (as voice over): Hawai‘i's economy doesn't need another fancy speech. It doesn't need more rhetoric or partisan talking points.

It needs a Governor who listens…and will take a stand.

As Lt. Governor, I've helped reduce bureaucratic red tape and already saved millions of dollars.

I've met with hundreds of small business owners, and I've heard their hopes and their dreams.

And that is exactly what will guide my decisions as Governor.
