What happened at the Hawaii Legislature this week?

Bills passed? Resolutions made? Budgets appropriated? Nominations confirmed?

Why, yes!

Dollars on a plate

It was also the perfect time to raise cash for political races, no?

Yes again!

State Sen. Kai Kahale held a campaign fundraiser Thursday at Wainaku Executive Center. Make sense, as Hilo is his district. Donations of $100 were welcome.

State Rep. Takashi Ohno held his fundraiser at Vino Restaurant in Honolulu ($100 to $1,000), while Reps. Mark Hashem ($50) and Jo Jordan ($50) met at the old standby Mandalay Restaurant.
