HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The HGEA State Board of Directors has approved the HGEA State Political Action Committee's recommendation to endorse Mazie Hirono for the United States Senate and Colleen Hanabusa for U.S. House of Representatives, District 1.
"Now more than ever, Hawaii needs a strong congressional delegation who will stand up for the middle-class and support bold, sensible solutions to put our nation back on track," said HGEA Executive Director Randy Perreira.
"Throughout her career, Mazie Hirono has been a strong voice for working families — which is why we are proud to recognize her with our early endorsement. We are confident that she will work well with Senator Daniel Inouye and together they will continue to make invaluable contributions to our state that will benefit us for many years to come.
"We are also proud to recognize Colleen Hanabusa with an early endorsement of her re-election to the U.S. House, District 1. During her first term, Congresswoman Hanabusa has proven to be a solid member of Hawaii's congressional delegation. She is a strong advocate of workers in Hawaii, as well as nationally, and will continue to support the middle-class and President Obama's initiatives to move our country forward."
