Mahalo to all my supporters! We did very well in the August 9 primary, and with your continued help, we’ll hopefully do even better in the general on November 4.
A special mahalo to those who became actively involved in my campaign by allowing us to post a campaign sign on your property; encouraging relatives, friends, and neighbors to vote for me; donating to my campaign fund; endorsing me; attending my functions.
Also, a big mahalo to those who came out to wave signs. I can’t thank you enough for taking time out of your very busy lives to brave the hot sun and muggy weather. The pictures below don’t include others who came out, and for that I apologize. And a heartfelt mahalo to Aunty Bessie Kea and my nieces, Kayla and Kelly Mukai, for preparing ono bentos for the sign wavers.
I also want to thank the hundreds of drivers and passengers who responded to our sign waving with shaka signs, waves, thumbs up, smiles, horns, flashing lights, and shouts of encouragement. In this way, I became reacquainted with many long time friends and connected with many new friends. Your support means so much to me.
In the past legislative session, with help from and in collaboration with my staff, legislative colleagues, and concerned members of our Leeward Coast community, I was able to accomplish quite a bit. For example, see Over $94 Million in Improvements to the Leeward Coast and Maile’s 2014 Legislative Wrap-Up. For continued updates on my legislative efforts and other news about our community, please log in to my District 21 Blog, Capitol website, Facebook and Twitter page. For news and announcements about our upcoming general election campaign, log in here, at Elect Maile. You can also reach me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
However, as we all know, much more needs to be done, and with your support at the polls and in our campaign efforts, we’ll accomplish them together. Please join me at the Friends of Maile fundraiser on Oct. 1, Wednesday, at The Mandalay from 6-8pm. I’ll also be posting a schedule for sign waving as the general election nears. To participate, please email me or log in to Elect Maile for the schedule.
Once again, mahalo!
