Star-Advertiser Endorses Rep. Shimabukuro

Smaller-town Values Rise to Top

The Star-Advertiser completes its legislative endorsement series today with a look around the most rural piece of an otherwise urbanized island. It starts with the farmland-turned-subdivisions of Ewa and curves around the Waianae Coast through the North Shore communities – where the “keep the country, country” mantra still resounds.

House District 45 (Waianae, Makaha, Makua): Voters should return Democrat Maile Shimabukuro to the House due to her broad-based experience over Republican competitor Jadeen Meyers. Shimabukuro has pushed for better educational opportunities, such as the planned improvement of the Leeward Community College satellite campus in Waianae, and projects such as turn lanes to alleviate traffic backups on Farrington Highway and enable possible contraflow lanes.
