Hi Maile,

Just stopping by to say that it was a very warm experience campaigning for you. There were so many new things I’ve learned and so many different people I’ve met. My kids also had a great time doing this. And even they too, said that it was a memory that will last forever.

I sure hope that we all can do this again. To meet you in person was the greatest accomplishment. I hope that people out there will appreciate what a great rep. the Wai`anae Coast has.

May God be with you in all your decisions you have to make. And hugs to Keani for us . . . .

Have a blessed day!

Aloha Pumehana
Wai & Ohana
