IKAIKA ANDERSON SHOWS COMMUNITY SUPPORT & VIABILITY RAISING $163,300 IN JUST 11 WEEKS FOR HIS CONGRESSIONAL BID
HONOLULU, Hawaii—Democrat Ikaika Anderson’s campaign for U.S. Congress raised $163,300 in the first 11-weeks of being in the race; 92% of those donations came from within Hawaii.
"We are grateful and appreciative of the support we’ve received in the first few weeks since announcing our candidacy,” said Ikaika Anderson, who declared his candidacy on August 8, 2013. “The dysfunction taking place in Washington D.C. only affirms the importance of letting Hawaii’s people decide between the tired politics and politicians who have been in office too long, or a new approach, with someone who can be trusted to bring people together and get things done for Hawaii and our Country.”
Ikaika is a Democrat with an inclusive style of leadership and an independent thinker who is not afraid to stand up for what he believes is right. Ikaika’s record as a member of the Honolulu City Council shows a commitment to using taxpayer dollars thoughtfully and carefully, bringing people together to get things done effectively, and caring deeply for Hawaii and its environment.
