What's New

United in Backing of Aug. 9 Primary Candidate Endorsements

The Plumbers & Fitters Local Union 675 joins with other members of the Hawaii Building & Construction Trades Council in the endorsement of the following slate of candidates on the August 9, 2014 Primary Election ballot:

Governor
Neil Abercrombie
Lt. Governor
Shan Tsutsui
U.S. Senate
Brian Schatz
U.S. House
Tulsi Gabbard
Hon. City Council
Ernest Martin


Heading the Trades Council’s list of candidates in the forthcoming August 9 Hawaii Primary Election is Governor Neil Abercrombie, “whose re-election will assure the momentum for positive changes benefiting all segments of our community will continue,” in the words of its president, Reginald Castanares.

As part of the gubernatorial team, incumbent Lieutenant Governor Shan Tsutsui was also endorsed.

The Plumbers Union business manager reminds voters the loss of any of the incumbents we support can abruptly affect the buildup begun during the Governor’s first term, noting “the state and the various counties are barely at midstream in their time-consuming march toward achieving major economic goals.”

In addition to the pictured endorsees, the Council urges support for the following candidates:

U.S. Senate: Brian Schatz-D

U.S. Representatives:
Congressional District 1:
Neutral
Congressional District 2: Tulsi Gabbard-D
