Aloha and welcome to the Democratic Party of Hawai'i County Website

County Chair of the Democratic Party of Hawaii

My principal message as County Chair is aloha and mahalo for being part of the rebirth of the Democratic Party - stepping up to work with resolve and determination on behalf of our Democratic Party values. We must be the model of what we want the state and national Democratic Party to be.

In order to accomplish this mission we need to pull together as a team – not as Bernie versus Clinton folks, not as haole versus non-haole folks, not as experienced versus novice or young folks… but rather in terms of our varying skills/abilities and interests/passions to pursue our shared values effectively.

[from Margaret’s address at the May 20th County Democratic Party Convention].

The Democratic Party of Hawai‘i County is hosting a Free Family Friendly Community Event - Malama ‘Aina For The Keiki - on Tuesday July 4th from 12-4pm at Old Airport’s Maka’eo Pavilion in Kailua-Kona and you’re invited!  Its potluck so if possible bring a dish to share.
