HSTA endorses Ige for Governor

By Ken Hupp - 67AM KPUA News

State Senator David Ige has picked up a coveted union endorsement in his uphill primary challenge against Governor Neil Abercrombie. The 13,500 member Hawai`i State Teachers Association, which backed Abercrombie in 2010, announced its support for Ige and urged other unions to consider the O`ahu Democrat as a viable alternative to Abercrombie.

HSTA President Wil Okabe said the union decided to back Ige due
to his strong support for public education and public school teachers. The endorsement is a potentially significant boost to Ige's campaign, which has struggled to raise money and attract visibility, despite having the support of former Governors George Ariyoshi and Ben Cayetano.
