Representative Holt's Message                                          

Aloha mai kākou,

Last weekend we honored those who have given the utmost sacrifice, our men and women who donned the uniform, taken up arms, and fought and died to preserve our rights and our freedoms. They were our nation’s best and brightest and we cannot help but mourn their passing.  It is important that we pause and remember to honor the sacrifices of the many for the freedoms that we all enjoy today. 

May I acknowledge and congratulate all the families with recent graduates last month and the weeks forth coming.  I sincerely wish all of your graduates only the greatest success to your future endeavors.

Due to recent events throughout the state such as the flooding on Kaua‘i and East O‘ahu, to the current volcanic activity in Puna, the most important thing that you can do is be informed and prepared.

As we head into the start of the hurricane season starting June 1, disaster prevention starts with having the proper plan, supplies and information to be ready for all emergency situations.
 
You can never be too prepared. I have provided a checklist along with website links to additional information to aid in your preparation.

As always, our office is here to serve you, so please feel free to contact my office with any questions or concerns you might have at (808) 586-6180 or via email at repholt@capitol.hawaii.gov.


E holomua kākou,
