Discusses Campaign’s Momentum in Closing Stretch
HONOLULU (October 21, 2014) — As walk-in voting began for the General Election today, Mark Takai was joined by his family at Honolulu Hale this morning at 11 a.m. to cast his vote.
“This is a critical period of time for Hawaii, the voters have a clear choice between those who will look after our local people and those who will look after mainland interests,” Takai said.
Takai was joined by his wife Sami, and his parents Naomi and Erik.
“I’m thankful my wife and parents were able to join me today. They have been my biggest supporters since I first ran for office. It is only fitting that the team who was with me at the start is here with me now,” Takai stated.
Takai closed by discussing his campaign’s plans leading into the November 4th election.
“Our campaign team is working very hard to make sure every voter in the district knows that I stand for the strong democratic values of our state. If I have the honor and privilege of being elected to Congress, I will continue Hawaii’s legacy in Washington D.C. I want the voters to know that I stand for cutting taxes for the middle class, bringing down the cost of college, and equal pay for equal work. I want to ensure that Hawaii remains a place all families are proud to call home,” Takai said.
