Mahalo to all for the tremendous support and encouragement you have offered over the past two weeks. Your contributions have taken us very close to achieving our first tier goal!
The next step is the formation of a local campaign committee on every island to help organize and take our exploratory effort to the next level. While raising money is very important and your contribution of $25, $50, $100 or more is much needed – what is equally, if not more important at this stage, is your time, expertise, and energy.
Please let me know at your earliest convenience via a response to this email if you would like to play an active role in organizing and building our campaign from a grassroots level. While much help will be needed along the way, we need people today on every island and in every community who are willing to take leadership roles and invest the time needed to build a strong state-wide organization.
In order to make a final commitment as a candidate, I must know that the commitment is also there from the community – both the financial commitment and the people power commitment. If you follow government or politics at all, then you know my history, my values and my track-record serving both at the County Council level on Kauai and for the past 8 years in the Hawaii State Senate. You know that I will fight hard for the values we share and that I know how to get things done.
The 2nd Congressional District in the United States Congress is a path I am seriously considering and it is time now to take this exploratory effort to the next level.
