Here We Go Again

Just a reminder to some readers of my blog, please do not think that my personal votes go to any particular politician because of a flier that I put on my blog.

I’m simply trying to get as much information out as possible on ALL CANDIDATES.

Neil Abercrombie Banner


Neil’s campaign for governor keeps rolling along and everyday he is getting more determined because of the outpouring of support and the strong desire for change in Hawaii. I talked to him on the phone last night after he returned from President Obama’s Congressional luau and his spirits could not be higher.

There are three things we wanted to share with you:

1. Beat the June 30 Deadline

The campaign finance reporting period ends on June 30. That means there is still time to make a donation and be part of the first quarter fundraising report. As you may know, these reports are scrutinized by the news media and others to gauge momentum. You can help send a signal that Hawaii wants change. The amount we will have raised is one thing, but the number of donors we will report is truly astonishing. In three months we already have over 500 donors. ┬áThat’s an amazing accomplishment and a sign that a true grassroots movement is brewing. Please consider adding to that momentum today by making an online donation of $5, $10, $25, or whatever you can manage before June 30.

2. Neil and President Obama

Yesterday, before the White House luau, Neil received a call from President Obama regarding the important climate change legislation being considered by the House of Representatives and how it might impact Hawaii. You can read an article about the exchange and hear Neil’s thoughts about the conversation. You can also hear Neil’s reflections on the luau, which he posted on Twitter. For more, read the post on Neil’s homepage.

3. Dinner 2.0 with Kelly Hu

On Saturday, June 27 at 5pm, watch a live webcast conversation between Neil’s campaign volunteers and Hawaii’s own Kelly Hu. ┬áThe actress and political advocate campaigned with Neil for then-candidate Obama. Participate in a live chat, listen to reflections on becoming politically active, and get more ideas about organizing for Neil’s gubernatorial campaign. For more information, go to Neil’s homepage at

Thank you so much for staying in touch with this important election for Governor.
