Honolulu, HI - Daniel Son, spokesman for Djou for Hawaii issued the following statement after the first scheduled debate between Charles Djou and Colleen Hanabusa, put on by the Hawaii Chamber of Commerce:

"Tonight, the differences between the two candidates were clear. Charles represents change - the status quo in Washington is unsustainable and unacceptable. Colleen Hanabusa represents more of the same: more spending, more taxes, more regulation - put simply, more government."

As Election Day approaches, Charles and his campaign look forward to continuing to take his message of fiscal responsibility and government accountability to the people of Hawaii's First Congressional District."

U.S. Rep. Charles Djou said he would use unspent federal stimulus money to pay the nation's debts, oppose tax increases and remove government red tape.

"I do not believe the future of our economy is going to come from a bureaucrat," Djou said. "The future of our economy is going to come from an individual, an individual American who takes a chance, goes into the marketplace and creates a job." …

Djou said he's met with many small businesses since he was elected, and they want less government intrusion into their operations.

"What they tell me is, 'Charles, I don't need a handout. I don't want a handout. What I want from the government is clear consistent rules and a low tax rate,'" Djou said.
