VIDEO: Rep. Tulsi Gabbard’s Hilo Town Hall Draws Largest Crowd Yet on Statewide Tour With More Than 600 East Hawaiʻi Residents

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02) was in Hilo last night, Tuesday, April 18, to host her fifth Town Hall in a series of seven statewide.

More than 600 East Hawaiʻi residents attended the meeting at Waiakea High School—the largest crowd yet on the congresswoman’s Town Hall Tour across the islands.

Many brought homemade signs showing their support for peace over escalating wars abroad. They expressed deep concern over the threat of North Korea’s nuclear capabilities, Hawai‘i’s preparedness and “President Donald Trump’s recent illegal attack in Syria.”

Residents asked Congresswoman Gabbard a variety of questions— from healthcare to decriminalizing marijuana to criminal justice reform—and many other issues that affect the people of Hawaiʻi.

She was thanked for introducing the Stop Arming Terrorists Act, for cosponsoring “Medicare for All” legislation, and for her work to honor Filipino World War II Veterans with the Congressional Gold Medal.
