Washington – House Republican Leader John Boehner pledged his support today to secure an assignment on the important House Appropriations Committee for Rep. Charles Djou.
“Charles Djou has my full support for a seat on the House Appropriations Committee,” said House Republican Leader John Boehner. “Charles would fight to curb government spending while working to ensure the Pacific Fleet, defense installations, and military personnel in Hawaii have the resources they need to help keep America secure. I look forward to working with him, the Republican leadership, and the Members of the Steering Committee to place him on the House Appropriations Committee at the earliest possible opportunity.”
With a seat on the Appropriations Committee, Charles Djou will be able to reform a broken earmark system from within and will be a forceful advocate for Hawaii’s interests and American national security interests. Djou, a Captain in the U.S. Army Reserve, represents the First Congressional District, which is home to the U.S. Pacific Command, the U.S. Army Pacific, the U.S. Pacific Fleet, the U.S. Pacific Air Force, Pearl Harbor, Camp H.M. Smith, Fort Shafter and Tripler Army Medical Center. Ensuring that these bases and military installations have adequate funding is in the best interest of Hawaii and the United States.
Note to those who oppose the Akaka bill: I believe you should also oppose Charles Djou. He gave an interview on the OHA radio program strongly supporting the Akaka bill. Furthermore, he explained why he would be far more effective than Colleen Hanabusa in getting the Akaka bill passed. I believe he is correct. Therefore I recommend voting against him.
