Lorraine Inouye has been a name I could trust for as long as I can remember. I trust her with our future!

Senator Inouye has been a tenacious advocate for reducing barriers and advancing agriculture in our state, especially Hawaii County. For her, it’s a lifelong commitment, growing from her roots in the plantations. I wholeheartedly support her reelection.

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.
