On July 6th, I announced my decision to no longer accept donations from political action committees (PACs), corporations, and unions. My campaign will now only accept donations from individuals.
My decision was inspired by my daughter, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, who made the same decision on May 19, 2017. When Tulsi got elected to the State House in 2002, and I got elected that same year to the Honolulu City Council, as her dad, I thought I’d teach her a few things about politics. Turns out I’m learning much more from her, than she is from me. This is a good example.
It’s obvious something needs to be done. I’m hopeful my decision will in a small way address the problem of special interests influencing the political process.
And as always, please feel free to contact me at 586-6830 or email email@example.com 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
