REPRESENTATIVE GENE WARD
HOUSE REPUBLICAN LEADER EMERITUS
HAWAI‘I STATE CAPITOL – HONOLULU, HAWAI‘I
December 19, 2012
HONOLULU – Representative Gene Ward issued the following statement regarding the passing of Senator Daniel K. Inouye:
“The State of Hawai‘i has lost a true son and national hero. Senator Inouye was bigger than life and a living legend. He connected Hawai‘i’s past with its future by what he stood for and what he did.
He will be remembered for being the gyroscope of our economy and our politics. He stabilized us and gave us momentum in just about every situation. His impact will be felt even more in his absence, as we realize all the things he did, and without grandstanding.
I was very fortunate to have known him and worked with his office throughout the years.
My personal sympathy for Senator Inouye’s family.”
