Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02) hosted a Town Hall on Saturday evening for Oʻahu residents of the Second Congressional District. More than 500 constituents from all over the island, including North Shore, Central Oʻahu, and Waianae Coast residents, gathered in Kailua to hear from and ask questions of their congresswoman. More than 25,000 viewers tuned in via Facebook Live for the third of seven meetings she is hosting on her statewide Town Hall Tour during the April District Work Period.
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard spoke about her work in Congress, explained the bills she’s introduced and cosponsored that benefit Hawaiʻi families, and answered questions from the audience on a range of topics, including the threat of North Korea’s nuclear escalation, defeating terrorist groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda, and Trump’s recent illegal attack on Syria.
Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard earned roaring applause for her work to pass “Medicare for All” legislation, her strong positions fighting for peace, demanding transparency in the Trump Administration by releasing the president’s tax returns, and fighting to protect the environment and our precious resources. She used the example of Kainalu Elementary School’s warm cafeteria, where the meeting was held, as she spoke about the many local infrastructure projects here at home that would benefit from taxpayer dollars if they weren’t being spent abroad in regime change wars.
