WOW! So obvious! Time to start “buying” support and VOTES for yourself Mazie, and your corrupt democrat politicians. And what better source than taxpayers money.
She earned it. I mean what does she stand for? Education. She represents the Americans that want to be wealthy by way of an education.
That is crazy—- UH gets so much money— lets help the farmers, we need farm worker housing!!!!!….. stop funding UH… enough already…
We need to invest in organic farming practices, help the farmers to have access to healthy farming practices—- no more research with harmful chemical farming practices – that create so many other problems. Let’s look at farming practices to prevent cancer to farmers and the buyers. I don’t trust UH with their history of supporting the chemical companies and blocking their researchers who supported organic farming.
Yes think Hirono is in with the big pharmacy /Chemical companies who also dominate UH research practices as well…. so very sad to our local farmers who just want to have healthy farming practices.
