The person who fills the seat of U.S. congresswoman Patsy Mink must have a deep commitment to universal human rights for ALL citizens. Much is at stake.
These were my overriding considerations when I first met and spoke with Tulsi Gabbard, candidate for 2nd district US House of Representatives. After hearing her personal story of political transformation, I am convinced that she will be an advocate for the human rights (regardless of sexual orientation, race, gender, religion, or economic class) of all Hawaii's diverse citizens. She is young, intelligent, committed to dialogue--and most of all--inclusive in her leadership style. This is the kind of ETHICAL leadership so lacking in other ego-driven politicos.
