I am honored and grateful by the support of the National Board. I promise to represent our local and members to the best of my ability.

Aloha Member,

The following is a recap of what the Legislative Committee has been doing for the previous few months.

Executive Director Brenda Ching and I, along with Irish Barber, a business agent from the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, attended a special breakfast with Sen. Mazie Hirono that was hosted by the Hawaii State AFL-CIO.   

Sen. Hirono was in excellent spirits, in spite of her recent cancer diagnosis. She outlined her immediate agenda and thoughts about Hawaii’s future.
