Aloha e Friends,

As many of you know, as the Senate’s Energy and Environment Chair, one of my top priorities is doing all I can to get us to kick our addiction to fossil fuels. That’s why I was stoked to have the opportunity to give the closing remarks at the 6th Annual Hawai`i Clean Energy Day on July 22nd. This special event brings together many of our energy leaders to discuss Hawai`i’s efforts to remain on the cutting edge in renewable energy. You can check out the speech here.

As always, best wishes to you and your family. Please contact me at 586-6830 or if I can help you or your family in any way.

Me ke aloha pumehana, 

Mike Gabbard, State Senator, District 20

Chair, Energy/Environment Committee

Honolulu (April 15, 2014) The Capitol Idol II: The Return of Capitol Idol, a government talent show, raised over $1,700 for the Hawaii Foodbank. In 2012, the event raised $1,400.

Members of the executive branch and legislature didn't hold anything back to win the coveted individual and team perpetual trophies. However, Blake Oshiro, Deputy Chief of Staff to Governor Neil Abercrombie, and his backup dancers outshone everyone with "Last Dance."

Sen. Mike Gabbard organized the fundraiser and comedian Champ Kaneshiro volunteered as emcee.
