The governor seldom travels alone, but to say he had company during his Hilo visit would be an understatement. Around every turn, the Governor was met with a respectful group of demonstrators… The Retired Hawaii State Teachers Association, mostly – sounding off on the governor’s plans to their tax retirement benefits. We caught up with the group at the university.
We also spoke to members of a larger group demonstrating at the state building. These folks said the gathering is on behalf of all the unions having a tough time with the new state executive.
