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.

Senator Inouye is a fierce advocate for energy independence. First she does her homework, and then fights hard for alternate energy solutions.
