“District 45 (Mililani, Schofield, Kunia): Former Miss Hawaii Lauren Cheape, 24, has deep roots in the district and could advocate for agriculture because of her family’s farming history in Wahiawa. With more experience she should find a role to play in local politics. However, Democrat Jake Bradshaw, a Navy veteran and partner in a small communications business, brings broader life experience to the job. He also has community roots, and we hope his work in community outreach while in the Navy can serve his constituents here.” – Star-Advertiser: Views&Voices section (10/26/2012)
Thank you everyone for your support! Unfortunately, things did not work out as planned … my heart breaks for my community. Nevertheless, we ran a great campaign. More importantly, we ran a clean, and honest, campaign. Thank you for all your support. A special thank you to all my volunteers! Please join me in continuing to pray for our nation and our leadership. Both local and national.
