This guy (Kaniela) is a world-beater. He's amazing. Unreal. During his first race, he crushed a millionaire incumbent, at 23-years-old, in a Republican leaning district, by personally knocking on over 15,000 doors. This time he's gonna have your help. Kaniela has shown that if you run as a strong progressive, there's no end to what you can accomplish. And, you know he will fight for you, because Kaniela doesn't take any corporate money. He's a warrior.

Justice Democrats Endorses Kaniela Saito Ing

“I'm a Justice Democrat because I believe that when Democrats put people before profits, reject big-money corporate corruption, and fight for working families, the whole country wins,” said Ing. “Standing together, we will take our progressive values to DC, shake up the establishment, and return the Democratic Party to its progressive roots,”

Kaniela's Community-Owned Broadband Bill Makes National News:

A Democratic Solution for Net Neutrality

The FCC’s ruling to end Net Neutrality is about more than just slower Netflix and a pricier Facebook. It's a threat to free-speech in our modern world. When monopolistic corporations control the internet, they control our ability to organize resistance. We cannot wait on action from a GOP congress who will continue to put their billionaire donors above the interests of the people they supposed to represent.

States like Hawaii must act now to save the equal-and-open internet. One option is to reject corporate internet services providers all together, and control our internet ourselves. Some municipalities, such as Chattanooga, have already shown that public and community-owned broadband attracts technology businesses and provides some of the nations fastest, affordable, and most-reliable internet to everyday people.

I am currently drafting a bill in the State Legislature that will (1) declare that internet should be equal and open to all, (2) urge Congress to reverse the FCC's ruling against net neutrality; and; (3) set up a task force to explore the best practices and feasibility of community-owned broadband in Hawaii.Just like roadways and electricity, we know that this is the future; and really, it's the only way to ensure Net Neutrality for decades to come. Let's send the FCC a message.
Co-sign Kaniela's bill for people-powered, super-fast internet for all here.
