There are legislators who say they support you but do little more and then there are a few of us who listen to your ideas or concerns and do something about it. This might be drafting a bill, scheduling hearings, making it a funding priority, and getting the necessary votes.
Often it also requires working with the responsible State agencies, going to the Attorney General, Land Board, Board of Education, Regents or Office of the Governor to make it happen. After 20+ years in the Legislature, I know this is my responsibility as your Senator. It's what you expect. I take your needs and concerns very seriously, which means you can count on my support-right to the end.
And don't you deserve this?
- Don't our children and kupuna deserve clean, decent public restrooms at our parks?
- Don't our families deserve good schools and affordabIe, quality health care?
- Shouldn't we be working to reduce income taxes and stop exporting billions of dollars for oil and food?
I believe we should put these savings to work creating good paying jobs, protecting
our ocean and forests, and insuring affordable health care and higher education.
This is what I promise to you - to address the hard issues and do the right thing.
Every single vote counts. Your vote matters. I believe in you and I appreciate your faith in me. Please Vote for me in the Saturday, August 9 Primary Election.
Me Ke Aloha,
Malama Solomon, Ph.D.
PS: A very warm mahalo to those who have endorsed our candidacy -- we were especially honored by have the respected Patsy T. Mink PAC again support us -- Patsy was a very long time beloved friend with whom I was privileged to work to help move forward the quality of life for all of the people of our District, Island and State.
