“Governor Abercrombie is the clear choice,” said Donna Domingo, ILWU president. “He’s always stood on the side of workers. He also understands the critical role ILWU plays in many of Hawaii’s most important industries including tourism, agriculture, and shipping. Hawaii’s future is in good hands with his leadership.”

“In many ways, ILWU helped build the state into what it is today,” said Governor Abercrombie. “It is an honor to receive the support of the union that brought the Democratic Party to prominence. With their support, we’ll move Hawai‘i forward to a brighter future for generations to come.”

Governor Abercrombie took office in December 2010. He has turned state finances around by over $1 billion, creating jobs and reducing unemployment. Hawai‘i now has a strong foundation to advance education for our keiki, improve benefits and services for our seniors, and expand stewardship of the environment.
