Hawaii State Senate Candidate

12th District
Waikiki, Ala Moana, Kaka'ako, McCully, Mo'ili'ili



The Necessity of fund raising

The sad fact is that campaigns take money to win. The more a campaign raises, the greater the degree to which they can get their message out. This is very important in our Senate Campaign as the 12th district is a downtown high rise area with little access to traditional door to door introductions. The most effective way to reach voters is through mail and online advertising.

Fund raising goals

In an effort to be very open about campaign spending, we have detailed below the specifics behind our fund raising efforts.
