Susan has experience outside of politics. Susan has the ability, the skill sets, the political rigor and stamina required to jump into congress on Day 1 and hit the road running.
WHY SHE IS RUNNING?
Susan Hughes is running because she loves Hawaii and the American way of life. Yes, both governments have it’s flaws. But in the face of a revolution she is running to defend the traditional ways of life established in 1776 under the Constitution of the United States.
THere are many issues to work on. But first Susan needs to hear from you. Please take a moment and jot down a few ideas that you think I might be able to address in the legislature for you.
