Former U.S. Sen. Dan Akaka is the honorary statewide chair for U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa‘s campaign for the U.S. Senate.

D.R. Horton-Schuler executive Cameron Nekota and retired banker Walter Dods are Hanabusa’s co-chairs.

“A big Mahalo to all of our community leaders who are lending their time and effort to our campaign,” Hanabusa said in a press release earlier this year. “I am deeply humbled to have their support and grateful for their help reaching out to our communities.”image
