July 20, 2016

It is with heavy hearts that the HGEA family mourns the passing of a proud member and strong advocate for working families, Congressman K. Mark Takai.

"Mark was a champion of the middle class starting with his days in the Associated Students of the University of Hawaii, throughout his days in our state legislature and in the United States Congress. The HGEA has lost a dedicated member. Our collective thoughts and prayers are with his wife Sami and the Takai family at this sad time."

In Solidarity,

Randy Perreira
HGEA Executive Director
