HILO, Hawaii – Governor Neil Abercrombie made a quick trip to Hilo on Sunday to formally announce his 2014 re-election campaign.
Speaking to a crowd of supporters outside the Tech Works building on Kekuanaoa Street near the Hilo Shopping Center, Abercrombie recalled kicking off his successful campaign for governor on the neighbor islands in 2009. He said then, as he says now, that his administration will not be Oahu-centric. He still believes the upcoming campaign will be won on the neighbor islands.
At the podium, the governor acknowledged taking on the tough issues and making decisions that weren’t always popular, but said that “the days of fiscal chaos” are over.
