At 6pm on Saturday, May 22, 2010, Charles Djou won the special election for the US House of Representatives Hawaii’s 1st Congressional District. The seat had been previously held by Neil Abercrombie. With Abercrombie’s resignation, Hawaii held the all mail-in ballot election to find his successor. Mr. Djou will now be vacating his position on the Honolulu City Council and will be heading to Washington D.C. to work on Capitol Hill.
Congratulations to Mr. Djou on his hard-fought victory and for a successful campaign. Every voter that has supported Mr. Djou will hope that he will keep to his pledge of working with the current leadership in Washington to find the solutions to America’s problems. Hopefully Mr. Djou will work for the people of Hawaii and will spurn the naysayers that depict him as a rank and file Republican.
Good luck in Washington D.C. Representative Djou and may you work hard to help all Americans.
