On the city council, Garcia heads the transportation committee, and recent accomplishments include voting to pass the excise tax increase that was necessary to develop O‘ahu’s mass transit system.
In the Honolulu Star Bulletin, Garcia said he loaned his campaign $40,000. “I felt I had to put up my own money to get the campaign started and to show everyone this is a serious campaign.” Garcia is opposed to the war in Iraq.

Mazie Hirono was born in Fukushima, Japan. As lieutenant governver in the Cayetano administration, she was only the second Asian immigrant ever elected to that position in the United States. Hirono, who served 14 years in the Hawai‘i State Legislature, ran unsuccessfully for governor in 2002 against Linda Lingle.

Hirono’s positions on the main issues facing Hawai‘i and the nation are thoroughly detailed on her Web site, mazieforcongress.com. She rejects the Bush administrations unilateral first-strike foreign policy; domestically she rejects Bush’s tax breaks for the wealthiest 2 percent. She supports expanding women’s rights, not contracting them, and equality of marriage opportunities.
