HGEA endorses Keith Amemiya for Honolulu Mayor
The Hawaii Government Employees Association, the state’s largest union, announced its endorsement of Keith Amemiya for Honolulu Mayor.
“HGEA’s Political Action Committee sees Keith as a leader who has a proven history of caring for the people of Hawaii,” said HGEA executive director Randy Perreira. “He’s smart, he brings people together and he gets the job done. In times of crisis and in economic prosperity, we believe he will base his decisions on what is good for the people of Hawaii, not just numbers.”
“HGEA members are many of the hardworking people providing essential public services during this COVID-19 crisis,” said Keith Amemiya. “Because they don’t seek recognition, they are often forgotten by people at the top, but I see them. If and when we prevail in this Mayor’s race, it will be my greatest honor to work side-by-side with our public employees to rebuild a strong middle class, chart a new course with fresh ideas, and emerge from this COVID-19 disaster with hope and health for all.”
“Keith’s priority during this COVID-19 crisis is community and worker health,” explained HGEA member Justin Lam. “As a Registered Nurse, my coworkers and I deeply appreciate that he understands how health and safety measures need to be balanced with plans to reopen the economy. We believe that if elected he will prioritize the safety of workers and the public who they provide services to.”
