Fil-Am Republican candidate Marissa Kerns holds town hall meeting
HONOLULU — Hawaii’s general election is about eight weeks away, and political candidates are using various ways to continue reaching out to their voters.
In a heavily Democratic state, Republican candidate for lieutenant governor – Marissa Dipasupil Kerns – is ready to take back Hawaii.
At a town hall meeting held over the weekend, about dozens of people – a handful sporting “Make America Great Again” hats – gathered at the Oahu Veterans Center to hear what the Pinay candidate had to say.
“Filipinos are great, hardworking people with class, with dignity, and I want to keep that. We are the best of best breed of hardworking, I would say, class of people here, and I want to continue that. I wanna rise them up. They’re my priority – the Filipinos, because that’s my root.”
Hawaii’s general election is on November 6. Polling places are open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
