Message From the Executive Director

Aloha!

 

Your Hawaii Restaurant Association Government Affairs Committee had a very busy February and March has been even busier – and now we need your help.

There are issues in front of us that deal with minimum wages, bans on plastics, and many more issues that might place our businesses in jeopardy.

We ask that you reach out to your state Senators and Representatives in both the districts you live and do work!

Find a list of your representatives here. https://openstates.org/find_your_legislator/.

Without your help, we won’t present a united front to the legislature.

Mahalo,

Sheryl Matsuoka

Executive Director
