We made it!
Am very pleased to announce that our campaign for re-election to the Kauai County Council has met and in fact exceeded our “matching funds” goal of $8,000!
Mahalo to the over 444 individual Kauai donors who have contributed $100 or less during this campaign and to the many others who have supported our efforts at various levels.
I believe we are the first and only Council campaign who has reached and exceeded this important milestone. The State of Hawaii will now match dollar for dollar those qualifying contributions up to almost $8,000!
Meeting this goal allows us to order and pay for the balance of the signs, banners, shirts, brochures and other materials necessary to continue moving forward with confidence.
In addition to exceeding our fundraising goal our campaign also is exceeding expectations in terms of volunteers signing up and showing up!
We recently held a “SignWaving” event in Lihue and the community came out strong. More people came out on this day than at any other similar event ever.
Please mark your calendars and join us for more Sign-Waving this coming Friday September 23rd from 3:30pm until 4:45pm in Puhi along the Hwy in front of Kauai Community College.
We are also looking for help phone banking and canvassing door-to-door: If you can help, please sign up to volunteer at http://tinyurl.com/helphooser
Mahalo so very much to everyone for “showing up” and taking an active role in our campaign for re-election to the Kauai County Council. Whether you are contributing funds to buy signs, banners and advertising, or you are a volunteer spending your valuable time helping the campaign – your help and support is much needed and greatly appreciated.
Our campaign is on track and with your continued help, we will win strong on November 8th. Imua!
P.S. Yes, we continue to fundraise and now are targeting our “pre-voting media push” goal targeting October 1st when our mass media effort must begin. If you can help, please visit
