Lt. Gov. Shan S. Tsutsui formally announced his candidacy to continue serving the state in his current capacity (www.electshan.com and facebook.com/ElectShan).
Serving as Tsutsui's honorary campaign chairperson is retired U.S. Sen. Daniel K. Akaka, who has been, and continues to be, an inspiration to Tsutsui.
"Shan is a shining example of the future of leadership in Hawai'i," said Akaka. "He is a relationship builder, forming genuine connections with others, and works to bring out the best in people. His vision, dedication and commitment to the residents of Hawai'i demonstrate the true aloha spirit that will lead Hawai'i into the future."
