I’m a proud Democrat and I am helping organize District 50(Kailua).
District 50 is currently represented by Cynthia Thielen(R). Rep Thielen is in the toughest race of her career against ultra-conservative Joan Hood.
As of this voting year, there is no Democratic Candidate opposing the Republicans in the Primary election for District 50 State Representative. As usual, no Democrats have run in this Primary because Republican Representative Cynthia Thielen has always been so popular with Democrats and Republicans alike.
This year, Cynthia Thielen is running against Joan Hood, and no Democrat stepped up to run in the General Election. Thielen is one of the few moderate Republicans. Hood is ultra conservative and opposes everything the Democratic Party stands for.
In the Primary, we have to pick and vote for only one party. Except, in the bipartisan Mayor’s race, we can vote for whomever we want.
Democrat Ikaika Anderson is running unopposed in the Primary and General
Democrat Laura Thielen is running unopposed in the Primary
The votes for Mayor are bipartisan, and will be on all ballots no matter what their party.
Democrats Tulsi Gabbard and Brian Schatz are both in good shape for winning their reelection Primaries.
So the question is, if we are going to have a Republican Representative for District 50 anyway, do we want to make sure Representative Thielen gets the help she needs, or do we want to risk Republicans electing Joan Hood?
You decide on August 13, 2016.
Going forward, we never want to see a situation were District 50 lacks a Democratic contender. This illustrates why it is so important for you to be active in your party
