MILILANI—The statewide International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 142 Political Action Committee, upon the recommendation and concurrence of the ILWU Oahu Division Political Action Committee and the ILWU Hawaii Longshore Division, has endorsed Marilyn Lee’s candidacy for election in House District 36.

District 36 encompasses Mililani, Mililani Mauka, and Waipio Acres.

The ILWU Local 142 is Hawaii’s largest private sector union with nearly 18,000 members.  They include longshoremen, truck driver, heavy equipment operators, housekeepers, cashiers, X-ray technicians, salespersons and more.

“The ILWU is not only the largest private union in our state, but also a union with a social consciousness, and one that holds a respected place in the history of the labor movement in Hawaii.  I am proud to accept this honor,” said Lee.

    "a union with a social consciousness, and holds a respected place in the history of the Hawaii labor movement."
    That history includes Jack Hall, Harry Bridges, Koji Arioshi, FM Davis, the Reinekes, Harriet Busolog Sawyer, all communists. She's proud of the endorsement. There you go Hawaii.

  2. devil...
    You wouldn't know communism from rheumatism. Turn the record over...red-baiting is soooooo passé.

  3. Liberal groups, who view Mililani as an important swing district, are hoping to win back this seat. Former Rep. Marilyn Lee and another area Democrat have already announced that they will both run against Beth Fukumoto.

    Chili & Rice Fundraiser for Beth will be emceed by Dawn O’Brien, April 13 @ Kipapa Elementary School. Mail your donation to Friends of Beth Fukumoto at P.O. Box 894209, Mililani, Hawaii 96789.
