Is Governor Ige supporting Republican Issues?

News Release from Office of Rep Gene Ward December 2, 2014

Honolulu, Hawaii – "We listened, and we heard an open invitation to work with Governor Ige on legislative issues," Representative Gene Ward said after the inaugural address.

"Predictions of prosperity include no tax on pensions," commented Ward after the Governor said "For our kupuna, it means helping them live out their golden years with independence, dignity, and the love and support of their families."

Representative Ward's legislative priorities include: growing and diversifying our economy while doing more to support small businesses; strengthening our public education system so that students and teachers reach their full potential; honoring our kupuna and respecting their dignity and independence, including their financial independence; supporting common-sense environmental protections so that our unique ecosystem is not threatened in the name of progress and job creation; and above all, working transparently and accountably to serve the public interest, while spending taxpayers' hard-earned money wisely, responsibly, and with the utmost accountability.

"Strangely these are the same priorities as Governor Ige," Ward said, "Let's stay tuned and see what happens."
