Aloha, Friend!

I am so deeply grateful for our solid victory last night after an intense campaign.

Grateful to the voters of Hawaii’s First Congressional District (Honolulu from Makapu’u to Mililani and Ko Olina) for entrusting me with this critical office. Grateful to our incredible Case for Congress ‘ohana who gave your all. Grateful to Audrey and our family for your undying support.

From the bottom of my heart, mahalo!

But victory is just a moment in time, past now, while the great responsibility and obligation that it brings are constant. That all just started, and we leave for DC in a few days to begin the task of helping find a better way forward for our country and contributing to a strong voice for our Hawai’i on Capitol Hill.

No Member of Congress can succeed alone, and I want and need your kokua to do my very best. You can most help by always letting me know of your thoughts, questions, suggestions and concerns for our country, Hawai’i, communities and families anytime. I depend on you to keep me connected and focused on our challenges and opportunities, and will always welcome and appreciate your partnership.

We will have many more opportunities to talk story before and after I am formally sworn in as the next steward of the office of United States Representative (HI-01) this coming January 3rd. Until then, I extend again my deepest appreciation and wish you and your only the very best.

Warm aloha,

Case for Congress
