I have known Senator Inouye for a long time and she is someone who works tirelessly and continues to listen to our community. Her passion is to represent the community, as well as the best interest of the state. She has the experience to get things done and has shown that through her leadership roles within the senate. Let’s continue to support her so she can help our community further!

Lorraine is the one candidate who has the experience and skill to make positive changes.

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.
