CREATING CHANGE ON IMPORTANT ISSUES
Chris is a different kind of leader who doesn’t just talk about change, he actually makes it happen. Chris has consistently put the interests of people first while tackling difficult issues, taking on special interests, and challenging status quo politics in Hawaii. He has successfully worked across the aisle leading bipartisan coalitions, and passed dozens of bills to address Hawaii’s pressing challenges.
Chris has been the recipient of multiple national awards and has been recognized by both President Barack Obama and Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger for his work. But the only support that matters, Chris says, comes from the people in our community and most of all his younger niece and our next generation who will inherit the Hawaii we leave behind.
