HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaii Gov.-elect Neil Abercrombie will travel to five of the state's neighbor islands following his inauguration as part of his pledge to include all islands.
Abercrombie and his incoming lieutenant governor, Brian Schatz, will leave for Molokai on Wednesday, two days after their inaugurations Monday.
The Democrats will then move on to Lanai on Thursday, followed by Maui on Dec. 11 and the Big Island on Dec. 12-13.
Their travels conclude on Kauai on Dec. 15.
A statement from Abercrombie's office said the trips will include islands outside Oahu in inaugural events through a series of "confirmation ceremonies."
The theme of the celebrations is "To Protect Hawaii."
