Quotes

"I have been a lawyer for over 35 years and I know that the vast majority of lawyers are people who want to participate and give something back to the community. This shows through pro bono work and involvement in initiatives and organisations across the country."
"Two things we always need to make Stand Down happen are veterans to attend and volunteers to help run it," Bare said. "We already have 300 veterans registered, and we're expecting a bunch more to walk inin on the first day. We also have more than 400 volunteers, with more calling our office every five minutes, so we're also good there. The one type of volunteer we still need are bailiffs for the court sessions."
"For these reasons and others, the governor respectfully declines to rescind his letter of removal dated July 25, 2014."
...and it's no surprise that she has been confirmed as the Assistant Secretary for Congressional and Intergovernmental Relations at HUD," said Hirono. "She has committed her career to public service and has also served Hawaii with distinction as Deputy Legislative Director for Senator Akaka. Erika brings tremendous skill and talent to all that she undertakes and I look forward to working with her in her new role."
