Senator Lorraine R. Inouye

Coming Home to Hilo

Due to redistricting that was completed by the Hawaii State Reapportionment Commission early this year, I am announcing that my place of residence has been “moved” out of the fourth senatorial district map and into the first district on the Island of Hawaii. This means that I will be representing mainly the Hilo area, and not those areas north of Pepeekeo along the Hamakua Coast, North and South Kohala, Waimea, Waikoloa and Kailua-Kona.

From the 2021 Reapportionment Plan “Metes and Bounds” document is the description for the newly revised first senatorial district.

1st Senatorial District

“The 1st Senatorial District comprises the portion of the island of Hawaii including a portion of Pepeekeo, Papaikou, Hilo, Keaukaha, Kaumana; and includes the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th Representative Districts, more particularly described as follows: Beginning at the most northerly point of the district, thence southerly 25.83 miles along Unnamed Boundary, thence southwesterly 1.24 miles along Unnamed Local Road, thence southwesterly 1.59 miles along Unnamed Boundary, thence southeasterly 0.00 miles along Unnamed Local Road, thence southwesterly 0.43 miles along Unnamed Boundary, thence southwesterly 2.91 miles along Unnamed Local Road, thence southwesterly 0.51 miles along Unnamed Boundary, thence easterly 0.03 miles along Unnamed Local Road, thence southwesterly 1.84 miles along North Road, thence southeasterly 0.12 miles along N Kulani Road, thence southwesterly 3.02 miles along Ihope Road, thence northwesterly 0.00 miles along Unnamed Local Road, thence northwesterly 0.01 miles along Unnamed Boundary, thence northwesterly 0.55 miles along Mokehana St, thence northerly 1.85 miles along Unnamed Vehicular Trail, thence westerly 1.18 miles along Unnamed Local Road, thence westerly 11.47 miles along Unnamed Boundary, thence northwesterly 0.65 miles along Unnamed Vehicular Trail, thence northwesterly 2.77 miles along Unnamed Boundary, thence northerly 1.70 miles along Unnamed Property Line, thence northeasterly 0.00 miles along Puu Oo Horse Trail, thence northerly 2.66 miles along Unnamed Property Line, thence northerly 12.08 miles along Unnamed Boundary, thence easterly 3.33 miles along Kapue Stream, thence northeasterly 1.46 miles along Unnamed Boundary, thence easterly 8.19 miles along Kolekole Stream, thence southeasterly 0.32 miles along Unnamed Point-to-Point Line, thence easterly 0.75 miles along Unnamed Local Road, 2021 Reapportionment Plans Metes and Bounds Page 36 of 54 thence southwesterly 0.02 miles along Unnamed Line, thence southerly 0.28 miles along Unnamed Property Line, thence easterly 0.82 miles along Honomu Stream, thence southeasterly 0.23 miles along Unnamed Boundary, thence southerly 1.18 miles along Unnamed Local Road, thence westerly 0.02 miles along Unnamed Vehicular Trail, thence easterly 0.29 miles along Unnamed Local Road, thence easterly 4.63 miles along Alia Stream, thence northwesterly 3.26 miles along Pacific, thence northerly 6.80 miles along Unnamed Boundary to the aforementioned point of beginning.”

Endorsements

Diana Van De Car

I have watched Lorraine work in public office for many years, from being a member of the County Council, to being Mayor, and now State Senator. What has always impressed me the most is her willingness to stand up for the right thing when others are reluctant. Whether she realizes it or not, her work has lifted so many of us. She has dedicated herself to this community and we are better for it.

​​Mike Kaleikini

Senator Inouye is a fierce advocate for energy independence. First she does her homework, and then fights hard for alternate energy solutions.

Lincoln Ashida

Lorraine is a quick study, understands the challenges families face, and is no-nonsense about transparency and accountability.  Her experience in county elected offices, as well as in the state senate help her effectively craft legislation to benefit her constituents.
