BY ED CASE – I’ve always been passionate about staying in touch personally with those I represent. It’s just the only way to bridge the growing gap between us and our government, especially when your job is 5,000 miles away from Hawai‘i in Washington, D. C.
That’s why, as Hawai‘i’s Congressman, I held 172 Talk Story open community meetings across Hawai‘i and with our troops overseas. No moderator, no censored questions, no controlled discussion, just me and you discussing our concerns, sharing our goals, talking through differences, finding solutions.
The upcoming U. S. Senate election is crucial, as you decide who can best work for all Hawai‘i in the Senate for years to come, and who can best help our country fix our economy and care for our people. To help your decision, and help me represent you if you elect me, I’m taking our Senate campaign on the road throughout Hawai‘i to listen to your concerns, share my thoughts and answer your questions.
