Letter to the Editor, Honolulu Star-Bulletin, 6/4/08:
I would like to express my appreciation to some of our legislators and our City Councilman for coming to the Memorial Day celebration that was held at the Herbert K. Pililaau Army Recreation Center (Waianae Army Rest Camp) last Monday. State Sen. Colleen Hanabusa, Rep. Karen Awana, Rep. Maile Shimabukuro and City Councilman Todd Apo have been coming to this celebration for a number of years and always give inspiring speeches.
Although our gatherings are generally small, our legislators come and give speeches that you can tell are well thought out and sincere. I would like to say thank you to those legislators.
