Star-Advertiser Endorses Maile

Editorial: “Senate in Flux with New Districts
Star-Advertiser, Oct 22, 2012

21st District (Kalaeloa-Waianae-Makaha): When former state Senate President Colleen Hanabusa left to start her first term in Congress, former Rep. Maile Shimabukuro was tapped to fill this seat. She has performed capably and deserves to be elected in her own right against opponent Dicky Johnson. A Legal Aid attorney, Shimabukuro has pushed for bills aimed at improving conditions for the poor and the environment, both key concerns of her communities.

Sen. Shimabukuro’s 2012 ‘Candidates in Focus’ Video

Taped on 26 Sep. 2012 at 4:30pm.


Mahalo nui loa for the privilege of serving you in the state legislature since 2003.  Some of the key things I accomplished in 2012 include:

  • $2m for Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center’s emergency room
  • “Tire Bill” task force to come up with solutions to the illegal tire dumping epidemic
  • Child Sex Abuse bill, which lengthens the time limit to file civil lawsuits
  • Family Abandonment bill, which allows persons to proceed in family court even if they cannot locate the opposing side

Some of my goals for the future include:

  • Expansion of Searider Productions, and an athletics center at Wai`anae High
  • Mandatory kindergarten for all keiki
  • E Ala Voyaging Canoe hale on the Waianae Coast
  • Hawaiian Immersion expansion, and creation of assessment tests in Hawaiian
