Mahalo – Big Island


NOVEMBER 9, 2016

Aloha my Republican Ohana and Friends,

On this beautiful and blessed morning, we awake to a new and amazing day in our great country. It is amazing for many reasons. First and foremost it’s amazing because it is the first day of a very bright future for all Americans. For we have used one of our greatest privileges that our forefathers have given us as a people of a free country. The power to vote for our leader, our President.

Arguably in the most important Presidential election in our great Nation’s history, we have elected Donald J. Trump to be our 45th President.

Yes, my brothers and sisters we are a part of history unfolding. And I wish to take this moment to thank all of you, not only for your hard work, but your unwavering belief in us achieving our most important goal this year. That goal was to help our country elect our Republican Presidential candidate  Donald J. Trump. 

Like President-elect Trump said in his acceptance speech early this morning, our work is just beginning. We now have to move forward to achieving all of our other goals.

Here in Hawaii, for our East Hawaii County Republican Party, those goals include putting together a strategy to get more Republican Candidates elected locally and within our State which will allow us to live in a place that has a more Vibrant political system of government that is fair and balanced for all of Hawaii’s residents.

During this journey to achieving our shared goals, I sincerely wish to say Mahalo specially to Our Executive Board: Lorraine Shin Penn, Lowana Richardson, Grace Chen, Shawn Merrill, Lee Harlow, District 2 Chair Sibi Hoke, Photographer & Social Media Chair Charissa Yonan, Gerald Araujo, Hawaii’s #1 Trump Talk Phone Banker Michael Liao, Mark Fullmer, Jesse Del Mar Jr. and Alan Koahou, for all of your consistent hard work and for not losing faith when all seemed so tense, and our path seemed like an insurmountable one.

Though I had to sometimes reassure some of you during the stressful times, that TRUMP was surely going to WIN, we stuck together, as a family to achieve our collective goal.

Why was I so steadfast in my belief? Many reasons, but first and foremost, because like Donald Trump himself, I had great faith in our goal. And nothing could shake that faith.

Mahalo for sharing this faith with me.

David Yonan

Revised East Hawaii Sign Waving Calendar with Two Simultaneous Sign Wavings

Aloha Trump Supporters!
With gratitude to all of YOU, we are increasing in volunteers coming on board!  The East Hawaii Co. Republican Party is growing, and we are receiving “Honks” from passersby with a sound of optimism and multiplication.
Attached is a REVISED CALENDAR for the period from October 17th through November 7th.  Please note that there are two days for TWO SIMULTANEOUS sign wavings. Those dates are Saturday, 10/22 and Monday 11/7 (See details below).
Saturday morning, October 22, 2016 from 9:30 to 11:00 AM  – TWO SIMULTANEOUS SIGN WAVINGS
The 1st location is on Kanoelehua fronting Walgreen’s, and the 2nd location is on Kamehameha Avenue fronting the King Kamehameha statue.  After sign waving, let’s please all meet at the King Kamehameha statue site where the EHCRP will provide LUNCH …. a Chilli, Rice and Mac Salad lunch, water and cold drinks.  Just bring yourself and a comfortable fold up chair.  We will have a tent set up at the King Kam location where we will gather to eat and talk story.  Can someone please help by setting up the Trump signs & banners at the King Kamehameha location by 9:00 am.?
Monday afternoon, November 7, 2016 from 3:30 to 6:00 pm.  TWO SIMULTANEOUS SIGN WAVINGS
The 1st location is on Kanoelehua fronting Walgreen’s, and the 2nd location is on Kamehameha Avenue fronting the King Kamehameha statue. The local candidates will probably be sign waving too so, we need help to “early occupy” the second location with Trump signs to claim our line on Kamehameha Avenue near the statue.  Can someone please contact Lorraine Shin, David Yonan or myself, Sibi, to let us know that you are able to help? It would be greatly appreciated.
Our desire is to have at least 20 volunteers at each location.  Please call your family and friends to come and join us. The volume of volunteers have will show a strong presence of support for DONALD J. TRUMP, PRESIDENT to “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”   This election by far, will be the most historical and “Truth Driven” election ever in our lives.  Each and every one of us is a part of this greatness and its story will be passed from generation to generation.
Please call either of us – Lorraine (864-3995), David (982-4101) or Sibi (989-7714) – for any questions.
Thank you and God Bless You All !!!
Sibi Hoke
District 2 Chair
