Hauoli Makahiki Hou.


The dawning of a new year is always an exciting time, filled with the promise of new opportunities, a chance to make amends or to begin a new chapter in our lives, or just a spirit of renewed purpose.


The coming year will be challenging, to be sure.  But we also have so much to be grateful for: the bounty of life in Hawaii and a strong nation, the love of family, and the companionship of good friends.  We should use these blessings as the inspiration to reaffirm our commitment to our families, friends, and community, and to do our best in every endeavor large and small.  With this renewed spirit of purpose will come a better home, a better Hawaii, and a better world.


Gail and I welcome 2009 with you, and with gratitude, hope, and confidence in our future.
