Endorsements

William Takaba, Retired County Managing Director

I served as Lorraine’s finance director when she was the Mayor of Hawaii County in the early ‘90s. What I remember most about Lorraine was her genuine commitment to improving the quality of life for residents of the Big Island. Lorraine stood for openness and truth, and made sure everyone who worked for her did the same. As our senator, Lorraine continues to show the leadership and integrity that we all want in our leaders – she does not compromise her values, listens to the needs of constituents, and delivers on her promises.

Charmaine Kamaka

I have had the privilege and pleasure of knowing and working with Senator Lorraine Inouye for over 30 years as she served our county as a council member, mayor and state senator. Lorraine’s experience, understanding, compassion and demonstrated commitment to our island and state make her uniquely qualified to continue to represent the people of Hawai’i Island in the State Senate.

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.
