Future majority

July 11th, 2014
By

The Republican State Leadership Committee's "Future Majority" project has included a Hawaii state House race as one of its 14 to watch during this year's elections.

Max Fowler, an associate pastor at Kakaako Christian Fellowship, is challenging state Rep. Takashi Ohno, a freshman Democrat in a Liliha based district.

Fowler is also considered one of the Hawaii Republican Party's best prospects this year.

    Ohno has done nothing to distinguish himself and could lose to Fowler, since the district was held by another Republican, albeit similarly undistinguished, in the form of Corinne Ching for several terms.

    But Republican thumpers who think they will be in the majority anytime during their lives are dreaming, or already in the afterlife, where everyone is Christian, women obey, and no one is queer.

    And the best part -- no more whining Lefties and no more fake global warming off which certain pile-ofticians can make money.

    Ohno actually DID have novelty going into that election -- a whole, "oh! Japan boy? He from Japan" label going for him. Man. We ARE the worst voters in the nation.

    One screen name, please, some of you. Well. ONE of you.

    Ohiaforest Chickengrease: you are both wrong about Takashi Ohno. I am a voter in his district and have been a resident for 17 years. Rep. Ohno has always been responsive to community concerns and after observing him in his first term, I believe he will be an excellent legislator for years to come.

    I don't even know if Fowler has lived in the district for very long. He certainly hasn't been involved in any of the issues concerning the district.

    And BTW Chickengreaswe: I detect a racist tone in your comment about Ohno's name.

    You go talk to voters who voted for him before you talk to me. TELL me that WASN'T a factor for some voters who voted for him. Tell me race DOESN'T factor into voters' decisions. I need a good laugh.

    Thanks for the flashback plug Espe . . . er, um, I mean Goober.

    Gary, everything you say about Rep. Ohno being responsive to his district may be true but there is more to being a legislator, or even a council member, than serving one's district. Laws made by the legislature, other than those appropriating capital improvement funds for projects in individual districts, are of statewide application and require a statewide perspective. It is in that sense -- in terms of what is done at the Capitol for the entire state -- that Rep. Ohno was undistinguished. He was not bad (like Corinne Ching), just invisible. But he's only got one term under his belt and he may yet grow into the larger role. Certainly, he was a welcome relief from his predecessor.

    Max Fowler has lived in the district for the last 10 years, unlike Takashi Ohno, who I understand has lived in the district for only a few years. Max is a local boy--born and raised here in Hawaii. Max has been involved in a number of community initiatives for many years, such as serving on the neighborhood board and neighborhood watch patrol. Max knows our community and will do an excellent job serving all of us.

    You might be in it.

    OK, enjoy the weekend already, crickey. Enjoy. Yourselves. Weekend. Yes?

    T Ohno is from Alaska. He parachuted in from Kodiak Island as a TFA. He barely lived in Hawaii 3 years when he was elected.
