I look forward to the next 4 years in Hawaii.

Aiona: great campaign, very classy post-election interview; you truly are a man of integrity and deep-rooted values. Despite our differences in stances on certain issues (actually most), I stand by my vote for someone with strong values, who has a real sence of 'Ohana, who I feel I can trust, and who could have brought accoutability to our lopsided legislature. Have a great time with the family!
Djou: I could be wrong, but right after the results came in, you almost sounded like a human being for a minute.
Abercrombie: your plan and policies are fine, that was never the issue, but are they only contingient on your political success (as was your fickle support/discontent of the military), or are they based on our shared values? You still have some work to do to earn my trust.
Hanabusa: Congratulations! You deserve the win and some much needed R&R.
Last but not least, I'd like to send a special congratulations to our newly elected young leaders: Stanley Chang, Linda Ichiyama, Brittany Smart, Tulsi Tamayo, and to any one else who stepped up to represent an intregral generation in sharping Hawaii's future.
