On August 6, 2009, South Maui Sustainability hosted Senator Gary Hooser, who presented an evening workshop titled Advocacy 101. The presentation gave an ‘inside story’ about how Hawai’i laws are made and how participants can be effective advocates for issues that concern them.

Gary Hooser is a State Senator and Majority Leader in the Hawai’i State Senate and currently a candidate for the office of Lieutenant Governor in 2010. His legislative focus has primarily been on education, land use and energy and environment issues. He has sponsored legislation protecting the public right to access coastal and inland public lands, supporting the preservation of agricultural land and open space and introduced and helped pass into law a “first in the nation” solar water heating mandate for all new homes built in the state of Hawai’i. Gary is known for his open and collaborative style and is respected among his colleagues and people around the state.

Thanks to Dr. Leisure for the excellent video.
