Message to Ed Case Campaign Supporters August 12, 2012

Dear Friends:

The toughest part of losing is feeling you let your supporters down.

Folks that signwaved and canvassed through rain and shine, phonebanked till their voices were hoarse, contributed what they could and more, missed their chance to attend the Olympics to see us through. Voters who cast their vote because they believed.

We ran a great campaign. Truly a people's campaign. We were and are an 'ohana in every sense of the word, united in a passion for a more open, honest and inclusive government.

But, in the ways of democracy, all of that does not always equal a win. Yesterday the hill just proved too steep, and I deeply regret and apologize that we could not achieve our goal together.

This morning, though, I am also filled with such deep gratitude to each and all of you.

To our campaign 'ohana and voters, it was truly an honor to be blessed with your support. Audrey and I very much look forward to thanking you personally and to continuing our many great friendships along our road ahead.

To all, thank you so much for your consideration. You listened through endless emails, ads and other campaign considerations, and talked story with me every which way. Whether you ended up voting for me or not, I learned so much from each of you and am grateful that we gave voters a true choice in the best traditions of our great country.

We hope you stay involved. Our Hawai'i and America need you.

For Case for Hawai'i - Lloyd Nekoba (Chair), Sarah Kaopuiki (Coordinator), our island coordinators and a cast of thousands - our warmest mahalo and aloha, and Godspeed!


Ed Case
