The final spot, "Easier," focuses on Duke Aiona’s commitment to prevention as a means to shaping a healthier Hawai‘i.
As Lt. Governor, Duke Aiona has taken a hands-on, collaborative approach to prevention efforts, emphasizing education, awareness and changing societal attitudes about illicit drugs and underage drinking.
An Aiona-Finnegan Administration will continue to promote programs that teach healthy lifestyles in schools, workplaces and in the home, and they will serve as a role model for these programs.

The following is a transcript of Duke Aiona and Lynn Finnegan's final web series video, "Easier."
Duke Aiona (as voice over):
I’ve seen what drugs can do to young people…to families… to communities.
That’s why I’ve put so much of my time into keeping our keiki and mo`o puna away from drugs and alcohol…and out of trouble.
As Governor, I’ll bring together all the resources I can to prevent the problem from ever happening in the first place.
It’s a tough problem, but the way I look at it, it’s easier to build strong children… than to fix broken adults.
