The agenda remains unfulfilled. Our work has only started. Because to bring about the restoration of long-dormant sovereignty, the people of Hawaii must convince themselves that sovereignty is just, morally correct and legal. And we must convince the governments of the United States, the State of Hawaii, and our several counties to act in concert to make this goal possible. As always, I stand ready to do my part.
