Reps in the News

A round up of stories you may have missed...

Rep. Glenn Wakai on KGMB9 News regarding the state's investment in the space industry. Rocketplane Global, one of the companies that Hawaii has been courting, closed its offices and left town in Oklahoma after taking $18 million in tax credits. Story here.

Here's a good news story on Rep. Wakai's recent donation to LBJ Medical Center in Samoa. According to a story here, donated toys and medical supplies arrived last week courtesy of Hawaiian Airlines, Shriners Hospital of the Pacific, and Reach Out Pacific (REPAC), the non-profit organization headed by Wakai.

Hawaii's Filipino Caucus is the focus of this story in the Filipino-American Community Newspaper, featuring Vice Speaker Michael Magaoay.
