"As I've been knocking on doors throughout the district, I've met many wonderful people and gotten an "earful" about community concerns and improvements that need to be made. Here are some of the folks I've met." - Mike


“We love Mike because he listens. We were upset when he changed parties. We are staunch Republicans but after talking to Mike and, more importantly, watching his voting record, it convinced us that he cares more about his constituents than about the party. It is a pleasure to be able to call him our senator and our friend.”

“We appreciate Mike’s continuous stand for righteousness in our community. He is a strong advocate for family values. We are also thankful for his recent efforts to reduce Hawaii’s dependence on domestic and foreign oil. He is leading the way for expanding renewable energy. He has a heart and vision for the ongoing commitment to our ‘Second City’—Kapolei.”

"Senator Gabbard is an easy person to communicate with. I want to see him re-elected as our Senator, so that we will continue to have someone we can trust."

"Mike Gabbard is one of my heroes. He has a tough job to do, and it does it well, basing his efforts and decisions on his convictions rather than on peer pressure. I am confident that without Mike’s efforts and his personal sacrifices made in the fight against same-sex marriage, or the equally-unwanted “civil unions” bill (which was another name for same-sex marriage), we would have that mess as law in our state today. Mike is one of the only politicians I know that actually has community meetings at a place where folks are able to go, at a time they can go, and where he actually listens to ideas and comments from his constituents. Our energy policy in this state has to change – and Mike is one of the few people I know who can actually do it. The same applies to our traffic problems – Mike is taking these issues on and making progress. I urge anyone who reads this to put your support behind this man – I’m actually a registered republican yet I support Mike fully because in Hawaii, it really doesn’t matter what you are, it matters how you vote and what you can accomplish. And Mike gets the job done, in a way that supports a conservative, Judeo-Christian world view."

Stephen P. Reimers

Susan Araki

"Senator Gabbard does a lot of good for the communities he serves. As a public servant, he is very responsive to the concerns of many, not just the communities her represents. My hope is that he’ll be re-elected to another term as a Hawai’i state senator for Oahu’s District 19."

Stanley and Roberta Jones

"We so much appreciate Sen. Gabbard keeping us informed at his Listen-Story events. He follows through and gets results."

Souza Family

"We love that Sen. Gabbard is always accessible and responsive. Every time we have called him about a concern he has quickly responded and taken action. He holds monthly community meetings when people can come and talk about anything that is on their mind, and then he follows up with good solutions."

Beverly Larranaga

"Senator Gabbard is my favorite senator on the island not just because he is my district senator but also because he believes in traditional family values. He votes and represents all of my values as a constituent. He stands for what he believes and does not back down under pressure.:

Beverly Larranaga

Donald Mack

"Senator Mike Gabbard is trustworthy & dependable. He listens to us & does something; whereas, today many Democratic liberal incumbents have their own agenda, and completely disregard & ignore their constituents. For example, in the last Legislature, Sen. Gabbard took the first giant step in proposing to ban fireworks which has become a health & safety hazard to many, many of us, young & elderly. Additionally, he has supported us on crime & fire prevention, been against the civil union bill, and strived to get us jobs, while helping balance the state budget. I would vote for him without hesitancy or reservation and urge all my friends in this District, especially members of St. Joseph Church, to support Sen. Gabbard."

Donald Mack, Colonel (ret.), Airborne Ranger, U.S. Army

Ted White

"As the Previous President of the Kumulani Homeowners' Association, issues would arise requiring me to contact various elected public officials. I can state without a doubt that the fastest response always came from Senator Gabbard and his outstanding staff. Not only would Senator Gabbard's office take an interest in the problems raised, they would spend significant time assisting me. The Senator's office would research the various issues and provide me with remedies. They would also arrange for other public officials to contact me and in one instance, they even received a response from the Chief of Police of the Honolulu Police Department. It was obvious to me that I was dealing with experienced and intelligent people who knew how to get things done. As far as I am concerned, any public official willing to work this hard for his or her constituents deserves all of our votes."

Edwin ("Ted") White, Attorney at Law (retired)

Lorraine Martinez

"Mike Gabbard has dealt with an even hand in his voting as our Senator on many occasions. He stands strong for environmental issues and for other initiatives that would benefit the working class. Our representatives cannot be all things to all people, so we may not agree on some issues. He must follow the law, the constitution, and work for the betterment of his constituents. I strongly support Senator Gabbard to represent myself and this district in the upcoming elections. In the recent past I’ve called the Senator to support us on an issue that would have been detrimental to our community. He gladly picked up the baton and fought back. I am very thankful for his support."

Jayne Arasaki

"Senator Mike Gabbard is accessible to the people—coffee hours, phone, emails, etc.—he is very available and willing to listen to the people. He seems to be aware of the needs of the community. Senator Gabbard has helped me and my family. He has proven himself to be a champion in helping others."

"Mike is more than a Senator, he is a friend. He works hard for our community and he responds to any questions or concerns in record time! He volunteers to read to kids in schools and he has great family values. He communicates with his district through his “Listen Story” sessions, so we are always well informed. It’s an honor to call Mike Gabbard my Senator and friend."

"There was an incident where I needed someone’s help and no one would help me so I turned to Senator Gabbard. Immediately the response I got was ‘remarkable’. I’m a coach for girls softball, including some that live at a homeless shelter, are from broken homes, and who have been rejected by other teams. We could not get a field to practice on and the City was not helping us at all. Mr. Gabbard immediately made a few phone calls and just like that I received calls from the City and other personnel. We now have a field we can practice on and our team made it all the way to the Championships. That just goes to show you that Senator Gabbard does care about the future of our kids. All of our parents and youth are very grateful to Mr. Gabbard."

George Furtado

“Of any politicians I have ever known, Senator Gabbard has impressed me as being the most honest, trustworthy and hardest working of all.

In the fall of 2007 he personally intervened to find out why our new subdivision was built without mailboxes. The new residents of Kaupe'a were required to sign for postal boxes that were located 2 miles away at the Kapolei Branch Postal Unit. This was totally unacceptable to every resident! He resolved the issue by having the Postal authorities build a group of cluster boxes located in the center of the community. Needless to say, to this day, the entire community of over 350 residents are very happy to have this service. Especially the people who had no transportation to check their mail. It brings the community together as they can walk to and from the boxes and visit with each other along the way.

I would also like to acknowledge the Senator's work in the area of renewable energy. The satisfaction of knowing that our elected official is working hard to make our community a more energy efficient place to live in is why I will vote for Mike Gabbard.”

George Furtado

“I appreciate Mike's passion for educational issues and his honesty about tough issues. His sincerity is refreshing. He's got my vote. ”
