“I’ve known Sen Lorraine Inouye since Hilo High School. I’ve observed her as our council member, as Hawaii Island Mayor and now as our state senator. She is helpful, extremely easy to talk to and has never forgotten where she came from. She has a solid record of accomplishment on behalf of her constituents. I trust her.”


Lincoln Ashida

Former, County Corporation Counsel

“As a former Hawai’i County prosecutor heading the sex crimes unit, and then the County’s longest-serving top civil attorney, I have worked with Sen. Inouye both on County and State business and legislation to make our community safer.  Lorraine is a quick study, understands the challenges families face, and is no-nonsense about transparency and accountability.  Her experience as a former Council member and Mayor help her to more effectively craft policy legislation to benefit her constituents.”
