English commended, activist Ritte endorsed

We wish to commend our Sen. Kalani English on his 25 years of service and wish him well for the future.

We are excited that Walter Ritte of Moloka’i has stated his intention to replace the senator (Gov. Ige willing).

Walter is an honored kupuna (one of the 100 for Maui’s 100th anniversary) and political activist, who has always kept the benefit of the ‘aina and the keiki in the forefront of his actions.

It will be an honor to have him serve us in the Senate. We look forward to supporting his candidacy 100 percent.
