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.”

Eric Tanouye

Senator Inouye has always been a strong advocate for Hawaii agriculture. With the challenges our growers are facing from invasive species to climate change, we need her experience, and the network she’s built to get things done for Hawaii ag moving forward.

Scott Grosskreutz

Hawaii has a severe shortage of healthcare professionals .  Senator Lorraine Inouye introduced SB1035 to exempt the healthcare of Medicare , Medicaid and TriCare patients from GET taxation.  The successful passage of this bill will increase the number of doctors, dentists and nurses able to care for our kupuna, economically disadvantaged and military veterans and their families on the Big Island.  Mahalo Nui Aloha to the Senator for looking out for our local communities!

Dana Goya, PhD

Senator Lorraine Inouye cares deeply about education and has been incredibly supportive of schools in the districts she has served. She has donated supplies, endorsed teacher projects, and sponsored many visits for students and teachers to the Capitol. Senator Inouye is sensitive to the needs of our community and her commitment to our youth and their success is admirable.

State Senate President Ron Kouchi

State Senator Lorraine Inouye is well respected at the Legislature because of her strong values and integrity. We can always count on Lorraine to guide us in the right direction when faced with tough decisions.”
