Senator Lorraine Inouye stands up for the people of District 4. She thoughtfully refuses to accept status quo to protect and serve her constituents with leadership we trust.
As the daughter of an immigrant sugar cane worker, she grew up with the powerful work ethic of Hawai’i’s multi-racial plantation culture. This family heritage brings with it humility and gratitude, which are the heart of Lorraine’s commitment to public service for over 30 years – as a Hawai’i County Council Member, Mayor and now State Senator.
This year, Lorraine personally wrote to the US Secretary of Homeland Security to fight deportation of Kona coffee farmer Andres Magan Ortiz. She was one of the first in the legislature to say NO! to using our island’s TAT for Honolulu’s rail system. During the 2017 Legislative session, she co-sponsored a bill protecting young women from fraudulent ‘services’ packaged as healthcare—and fought considerable pushback to win passage. She has brought home millions in programs and facilities for her district including $1.5 million to improve North Kohala’s ag water infrastructure for sustainable farms, large and small. She is a leader in renewable energy and climate change. She is courageous and effective.
“Doing the right thing for constituents isnʻt always easy. And itʻs not often black and white. My door is always open to learn about the challenges you face. I’m grateful to be your State Senator, and ask for your support and vote to allow me to continue to work for you.”
— Lorraine Rodero Inouye
