Aloha e Friends,

I hope you and your families are well. Wow, what a momentous way to say goodbye to 2018 for the Gabbard ‘ohana. Carol and I celebrated our golden 50th wedding anniversary on December 27 with family and it was so nice to have the kids and grandkids around for simple family time.

Happy New Year to you and your ‘ohana. Opening Day of the 2019 Legislative Session kicked-off on January 16. During the upcoming 2019 session, I'll continue to be Chair of the Agriculture and Environment Committee. I'll also serve as a member of the Judiciary Committee and the Labor, Culture, & the Arts Committee. As Chair of AEN, my priorities in 2019 will be to continue working to increase local food production and to reduce single-use plastics.

As always, please feel free to contact me at (808)586-6830 or sengabbard@capitol.hawaii.gov if I can help you or your family in any way. You can also follow me on Twitter @senmikegabbard, Instagram @sengabbard, or Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/senmikegabbard

Me ke aloha pumehana, 

Mike Gabbard, State Senator, District 20
