Aaron Chung

I’ve been a long-time supporter of Lorraine and the reason is simple: Lorraine is a good person. She was brought up in Hilo through humble circumstances and it shows in her decision-making and the way she treats people. She’s a kind-hearted, clean-hearted and caring individual who is genuinely respectful towards others. Her character fits the term “public servant.” We need more people like Lorraine in government.

Charlene Iboshi

Lorraine is a proven leader, who cares about our community’s health, safety and well-being. Lorraine listens to our community to improve the economic, educational and social conditions for our island. She gets things done effectively and with integrity.

Wayne De Luz

I am honored that Lorraine is our senator and wholeheartedly support the work she does on our behalf.  Let’s keep Lorraine in the senate by voting for her this election.  Lorraine gets the job done.
