Charles K. Djou: I’m Running for Congress!
The policies of Washington D.C. today have created too few jobs and too little economic growth in Hawai‘i and the U.S. Our nation’s budget deficit needs to be contained, and we must find a long term solution to our looming national debt.
After much thought and consideration with my wife Stacey and our family, I have decided to run for the U.S. House of Representatives in Hawai’i’s 1st Congressional district next year.
I will bring an independent approach to a Washington polarized between political extremes. Hawai‘i needs a bi-partisan congressional delegation that can talk with both sides of the aisle. Hawai‘i needs active representation. I look forward to earning your trust.
